G’day! Or in my northern British lingo, alright!

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 very closely with Script Editor, Hayley McKenzie, and  working with Hayley on a number of projects. I’m currently working on a project at December Media, due for release June, 2018.

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.
