Award Winning Screenwriter, Novelist and Story Consultant

I completed a Creative Writing MA at the University of East Anglia in 2012 and I have written for radio, TV, online, and advertising. I have worked with some of the UK's leading TV production companies and in 2016 I won the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards for a half-hour comedy, and was a finalist in 2017..

A one-off I co-wrote about Muhammad Ali called The Greatest. Of All Time was broadcast on Sky Arts in early 2017 as part of the Urban Myths season, and I also reached the last ten in the Write to Green Light competition with a one hour drama. 

I have also given masterclasses at UEA and the National Film and Television School.
