From the UK, but currently hanging out in the beautiful city of Melbourne drinking fabulous coffee!

I started screenwriting full-time a couple of years ago after completing a PhD in animation. I work closely with Script Editor, Hayley McKenzie.

Passionate about writing for film, television and theatre – well any platform that allows me to tell a story, I’ve worked for some great storytellers including – Aardman Animations, Rising Sun PicturesWarp X, The Lampshade Collective, Optimism Film and December Media.  

TankedWish Upon a Star and Buds have been optioned with December Media  and currently in development. I was a writer on The Great Barrier Reef, IMAX, due for release later this year. Crash Test Divorce is about to hit the festival circuit. My  monologue trilogy, Half of MeHalf of Her and All of Me are in post production with Choo Choo Productions.

Strawberry was one of 65 plays from 700 to reach the 2nd round at the Bush Theatre, London, UK and recently licensed through JAB Managament. Half of Me was selected  performed at the PlaySix Festival and also reached the final round at Reboot and Canal Shorts.
