The State of It
(6x 30mins for BBC Scotland)

I’m an actor, writer and producer working extensively in theatre, film and TV throughout Scotland. I've performed in a number of new play and classic plays, as well as writing and performing my own comedy. In 2017, I was nominated for Up and Coming Actor/Actress at the Scottish Variety Awards and almost missed the award announcement because I went for a piss.
I’m currently part of the Comedy Unit, working on and producing a variety of projects, including:
(3x 10mins for BBC Scotland)
A spin-off to the BAFTA winning Scot Squad. Detectives Squire and McGill investigate some of Scotland's most famous cold cases.
Scot Squad: Archie Pepper Off the Record
(4x 5mins for BBC iPlayer and online)
Director, Writer, Producer
A series of shorts for iPlayer that saw Scot Squad's Archie Pepper grill the Scottish political leaders in the lead up to the December 2019 general election.
Here’s a few other things I've done:
Alumni of the Fast and Funny scheme with BBC Comedy/Writer’s Room.
Sketch writer and performer for BBC Short Stuff.
Joke writer and panelist for Breaking the News (I told a story about the Chuckle Brothers that no one laughed at. I still have anxiety dreams about it).
Launched BBC The Social in December 2015 (the video I made also had a joke about the Chuckle Brothers in it - a complete coincidence I only realised while writing this list).
