SCREEN BIO

I am a screenwriter and television producer hailing from Teesside, a coastal region in the North East of England. I moved to London in my late teens and have since been fortunate to live and work internationally; in Ireland, Finland, Spain, and the USA. I currently live in Auckland, New Zealand with my husband and our two sons.

Since 2008 I have worked extensively in television, producing long and short-form content for networks in the UK and USA across a variety of genres, including; factual entertainment, docudrama, celebrity reality, lifestyle, and news. As MD and Executive Producer of Pink Lemon Media Group, I brought the monthly magazine-style show Stage Talk and celebrity reality show Lauren Harries: Working 9-5 to air, (Showcase TV, UK).

 

From 2012 to 2015 I was Creative Producer at the home-shopping network, The Jewellery Channel (UK). Responsible for producing all non-live content on the channel, this role allowed me to travel the world with the channel's presenters, shooting packages in fabulous locations including Thailand, China, India and across the United States. 

 

In July 2015, I was awarded Master of Arts with distinction (MA, Writing for Screen & Stage) by Regents University, London. I was also honoured to be the recipient of the Postgraduate Student Prize.

 

Recent career highlights include writing and field producing on the hit US docudrama series, The Price of Fame (AMS Pictures Original Programming for Reelz Channel). Telling the stories of Princess Diana, George Michael, and Eddie Murphy. In June 2018, I was honoured to pick up the award for Best Song at the Concrete Dream Film Festival, L.A. for Healing Words - the theme song from my short film, Healing.

I am currently creating a new comedy-drama series set in Auckland, as well as writing for Shortland Street (South Pacific Pictures for TVNZ 2), New Zealand’s most successful and longest-running serial drama, airing five night a week.

I am proud to be a member of both the New Zealand Writers Guild and the Dramatists Guild of America, where I serve as New Zealand Ambassador.
