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 currently working with Hayley on a number of projects.
I’ve always been 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 Pictures, Warp X, The Lampshade Collective, Optimism Film and December Media.
If you wish to request a copy of my writers portfolio, which also includes a number of projects not listed on the website you can contact me HERE

Half of Me has been selected as one of the six plays to be performed at the PlaySix, 2017. The film version is in pre-production and the trilogy of shorts will be completed by the end of 2018. Further information for PlaySix can be found HERE
Founded in 2006, the annual PlaySix Short Play Festival provides quality exposure to first-rate Victorian playwrights (both emerging and established), as well as a networking forum for Melbourne actors and directors. Many works originally produced in PlaySix have gone on to great success at other local and international festivals and events. 2017 is our twelfth season and we look forward to an exciting new relationship with Gasworks at the Studio Theatre.
