About Gareth

Hi. I'm a UK based Scriptwriter with a diverse portfolio of work.

Born in Scotland, raised in Portsmouth, Hampshire, I have travelled extensively and lived in Spain for a while, before returning to the, ahem, warmer climate of my home town, sunny Pompey.

I have previously worked as a Maritime Weapons Technician, a Telecommunications Engineer, and a Technical and Diversity Trainer for some of the U.K.'s top companies including Marconi Systems, Her Majesty's Ministry of Defence and B.T.

Creatively I have been a Co-Producer on two short films, an actor, an extra, and, - don't laugh - a stand up comic.
I was the singer-songwriter for the Portsmouth band "Tarkus" many, many moons ago, where I also wrote lyrics for other bands, and sold short stories, sketches and poetry before I graduated into Scriptwriting.
