Social Media

Wordwrangler - more than 20 years experience from big brands in London to speechifying for a world champion boxer, plus scripts for tv, film, and theatre.

Headhunted by a leading London ad agency in the 90s to work on projects for household name clients, being a copywriter taught me to write to a deadline in styles matching client needs rather than my own preferences. It was invaluable experience, and in subsequent years as a freelancer I have worked on everything from brochures and websites to conference speeches and promotional videos, for corporate clients of all sizes, along with start-ups and charities.

Moving to Nottingham, I became active as a scriptwriter. My first play became the basis of my first film treatment, which won a Times competition and secured a meeting with Tim Bevan, producer of hits including Four Weddings And A Funeral. That helped open the door to TV work with the BBC, and commissions from filmmakers and production companies.

Film continues to be an interest – I’ve written acclaimed short films, such as the multiple-award winning White Lily, which has over a million YouTube views. I’m developing features getting industry attention too. I’ve also scripted comics, and created projects for digital media. My interest in live work continues, with plays appearing in mainstream venues, as well as being used in training events and at schools.

I am increasingly interested in supporting others to develop their capabilities, and run workshops for corporate clients and at community level. This year, that’s included working with BAME young adults near Camden, close to where Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley was raised, creating horror stories relating to their mental health experience. And I worked with young people in Mansfield, generating material for social media on the lead-up to an arts festival, and - more importantly - providing opportunities to work in teams developing their confidence and flexibility in real world situations where things won’t go as planned.
