Spent three years working with Carlton Television (RIP) as part of the comedy script development team.

I created and now own Goochicoo the baby brand with nappitude I also created and now own half of the rock chick brand 'Scarlett and Crimson' after selling half the intellectual property rights to Coolabi PLC. which has a 16 book deal with Simon and Schuster in the USA and U.K. We also have some fab product in Boots in the U.K. and launch a major cosmetics and accessories range into Superdrug (UK) partnering with beauty Icons Ruby and Millie.
