I have been working as a writer for the last 10 years. I have written spec scripts, screen plays, sketches for stage shows and radio production. I have also edited speeches and comedy routines for professional standups. This is in addition to contributing to various blogs and writing jokes for greeting cards and mobile phone companies.
