Lawrie was born and raised in Urmston, Manchester. Nobody’s ever really heard of the place but he was delivered in the same hospital as Morrissey, though that’s where the comparisons end. He went to Oxford University where he graduated in English Language and Literature. He then worked in social media market research for three years, specialising in the movie industry and learning mainly to make sure your Facebook privacy settings are as high as it is humanly possible to set them.
He is currently based in London, expanding his slate of feature ideas and scripts. Sometimes he writes comedy, sometimes he writes character-driven drama, sometimes he writes both. Sometimes he writes biographies about himself in the third person and finds it strange.
