I’m Gary - an award-winning author, screenwriter, and creative developer.
Working for over a decade, I’ve co-created five IPs (so far) and written for LEGO, Disney, Universal Studios, and Marvel.
From pre-schoolers all the way to adults, I’ve written for them all. I love sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and adventure stories filled with thrills, laughs, drama, and action.
I also have extensive experience in writing for corporate and educational clients through freelance orders and salaried marketing and communication roles.
Need a creative wordsmith?
If so, great! I’d be thrilled to hear from you. Contact me to discuss your writing, editing, and developmental needs. I’ll be happy to share portfolio material and samples.
Building stories with LEGO
I’ve written 30+ LEGO comics (and one picture book story) for the Disney Princess, Jurassic World, Ninjago Legacy, Avengers, and Spider-Man brands. Look out for more in 2023 and beyond!
Educating through animation
I worked with Kino Bino Studio in developing pitches and writing animation and audio content for Amaze.org and National Trust.
Creating IPs for page and screen
I work with BHP Comics and I’m the co-director of BHP Studios. With them, I co-created the BOLD Superhero Universe through Creative Scotland and authored the award-winning YA graphic novel series, Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles. I’m co-developing new and exciting projects for page and screen right now. Watch this space.

“I’ve worked as Gary’s editor and I can thoroughly recommend him as a writer. I think he’s got a good sense of structure and character, able to handle both drama and comedy, and he’s also very open to editorial feedback and collaborating, as well as meeting deadlines.”
Jack Lothian, Editor at BHP Comics and TV Writer/Showrunner (Skins, Shameless, Strike Back)
“Gary helped us to develop a pitch for an animated series. He worked under a tight deadline to break down a pre-existing script into clear episodes, which dealt sensitively with the subject matter and ensured the content was appropriate for the target audience age. His enthusiasm for the project and his can-do attitude made him a vital team member and we wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.”
Steff Lee – Director, Kino Bino Studio
“Working with Gary, I found him to be talented, conscientious writer, passionate about making things the best they can be. His enthusiasm for projects is infectious, and it was a great experience to collaborate with him.”
Remy Labaki – Producer, Hey Daisy Moon
“Gary is a very imaginative writer and willing to work in a collaborative fashion which, as an artist is essential. He was able to tie together any storyline whichever way it went and develop such fascinating characters that it kept my excitement in our plus five years of working together. If you want compelling writing with inspiring characters. Gary’s your man.”
