Assistant Development Producer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early

Comedy nerd by trade, I'm currently employed at What Larks!, leading the growth of our comedy unit following the success of Sky Playhouse Presents: Damned. This aired in Sky Arts in June 2014, and since then we've nurtured our funny business. We're open to all and any ideas, particularly those rooted in difficult, unorthodox, social, political and humane subject matters. Unusual is what we do best. It's our credo.


I also script edit in my spare-time and am always on the look-out for interesting projects to take on board.
