For the last 14+ years, I’ve funded my gin, vinyl and haberdashery habits by edit producing and writing voice over scripts for television for most broadcasters in the UK, a couple in the US, plus Netflix and Amazon.
I’ve written over 110 hours of broadcast television: from cookery shows to property programmes, dog grooming competitions and travelogues, plus a spot of grime porn thrown in for good measure.
My strengths lie in writing voice over with a smidge of wit, a pinch of cheek and a soupçon of personality. I’ve set the tone in commentary for many a series, not to mention doctoring and polishing other scripts.
My career highlights to date include scripting an observational documentary series about the Best Western hotel chain that half the viewers on Twitter thought had been created by Ricky Gervais, and becoming the acceptable voice of Top Gear / Grand Tour presenter James May for his most recent travel series’ for Amazon.
Oh, and the odd pun. Love a pun, me. I’m pun-loving criminal, in fact.
Top pun, that!
