About Me


My name is Richard Cookson and I work fulltime in TV Drama development and freelance as a writer for film and comics.

I was born in 1980 and grew up in Pembrokeshire in Wales. I graduated from Bournemouth University with a degree in New Media Production in 2002, and in 2003 I moved to London. Since then I've been a teacher, a film extra, and a graphic designer, but for the last six years I've worked in TV drama. I currently live in Brighton.

My TV credits can be found here and my a link to my agent here.

This website displays some of my past work as a designer and artist, as well as various ongoing side projects in comics.
