I'm a Writers' Guild Award-winning screenwriter for film and television, the Co-founder of children's animation production company Big Serious Studios, a published Author/Illustrator for children's books (Penguin Random House), a director for animated television, a television presenter, and a retired professional fairy. More recently, I received Australia's top prize for science fiction screenwriting - The 2024 John Hinde Award - from The Australian Writers' Guild, and aside from my work as a screenwriter, I've been developing a new method of meditation for children that uses active imagination, and facilitating workshops on creativity at places like the iconic Soma Retreat Space, in my home town of Byron Bay, Australia.



I Co-founded Big Serious Studios, alongside industry veterans Katrina Peers and David Peers, to pioneer new forms of children's entertainment at the intersection of art and science. I'm passionate about the transformative power of storytelling and the joy of lifelong learning, Big Serious combines both of these things to create television, films and story worlds that not only entertain but enlighten.

My expertise is in writing and developing children's television, especially animation. I've written around 24 hours of broadcast television (the equivalent of ten Avengers movies) for platforms including Netflix, ABC, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney. I have a Writers' Guild Award for children's television and I work across all genres and demographics including:


Preschool: Kangaroo Beach Seasons 1,2 & 3 (and 2x specials), Beep & Mort S1 & 2, Guess How Much I Love You, The Wonder Gang, Sydney Sailboat.


Bridging: Beat Bugs (Emmy Award Winner), Motown Magic.


7-11: Alien TV, Blinky Bill, Best Furry Friends, Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong.


8-12: 100% Wolf Seasons 1 & 2, Space Nova S1 & 2.

I have oodles of experience writing for animation, live-action, factual programming and puppets.

Television presenting

I'm a host on all four seasons of Get Arty, which screened on Channel 7 in Australia and on Foxtel's Discovery Kids across South East Asia. I pitched and presented how-to segments for the show, including how-to: paint friend's faces to look like alien lizard people (naturally), draw ballerhinos (that's a ballet dancing rhino), and turn fish-shaped soy sauce containers into earrings (recycling but make it farrrshion).
