Script Development


As well as working on my own projects, I have helped with the development of a number of other projects for various media.

I have worked as a SCRIPT READER, writing coverage for individual clients, funding agencies and production companies.

As a SCRIPT EDITOR, I have worked with independent production companies, directors, producers and other writers to provide insightful critique and analysis for projects at various stages of development.


Write. Rewrite. When not writing or rewriting, read. I know of no shortcuts.
