Emmy Nominated and PAGE Award Winning Screenwriter and Novelist
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 developed stories with some of the UK's leading TV production companies and in 2016 I won the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, 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. It was an adaptation of a true story when he tried to talk a suicidal man down from a 9th floor ledge.
As well as winning the PAGE awards, I reached the last ten in the Write to Green Light competition, held by Lionsgate and Green Door productions.
I have also given masterclasses at UEA, the National Film and Television School, The Central School of Speech and Drama, and I sometimes work as a TV producer on some of the UK's biggest shows.
I live with my wife in London and enjoy going for walks because my legs decided running was a bad idea a few years ago. As well as fantasy I love crime novels and self-help books, as I gave up drinking and eating sugar a few years back. If you want to connect with me you can on:
If you're interested in writing I share my experiences over on my blog. From writing habits to good books to read on it, there should be something you can enjoy.
