Associate Writer: ZENDEH.

Creative Producer: Ingenius Theatre.

Award-Winning Film Maker: Tyne God.

I have worked on all ZENDEH's productions, as either writer or dramaturg. I have had work shown at Northern Stage's First in Three and Live Theatre's Short Cuts; I have had plays performed in Edinburgh, York and London. I am also Creative Producer of Ingenius Theatre, which works with young people to make new work.

Before 2010 I worked as a freelance copywriter for a commercial radio station in Edinburgh and advertising agencies in London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Glasgow. My freelance clients included Dell, Toyota, Lloyds Pharmacy and The Famous Grouse.

I worked as copywriter for ten years building extensive experience of advertising and marketing for TV, radio, online and digital. I have also designed and built websites and designed print campaigns for smaller, local organisations.

I worked within the online industry from 1995. I worked as an online journalist for a café in Edinburgh, writing a regular blog; my thoughts on what was happening around the web on a daily basis. I then went on to be a web builder for a company called Clear Cut, which was then bought out by Dowcarter. I designed and built websites, online video, online audio; wrote web copy, manuals, dialogue for help desks and banners, email and SMS campaigns. Clients included The Famous Grouse, The Macallan, Carling, Highland Park, Honda and Bank of Scotland.

Before studying Media Production at Northumbria, I worked as a freelance producer and production assistant around Leeds and Bradford on community films and lo/no budget films. I had films shown at the Leed International Film Festival.

Before that I worked as a classroom assistant in primary and secondary schools in Bradford.
