New writer based in Manchester. Started in theatre, moving towards screen and film, and also currently finishing my first novel. Currently pitching ideas and getting to know more people in the industry.
My first screenplay, 'The Interview', has been optioned by a local production company, as well as a short, 'Only Love', that will be used to showcase talent and raise profiles and funding. I've attended a few scriptwriting workshops/ events and had some excellent feedback from industry professionals, particularly regarding my new screenplay 'Pleiades'.
Recently my play, 'The Beast Within' won a theatre showcase and is due for full production April 2015. Since 2012 I've had 4 of my plays produced.
The best work comes out of collaboration- so I'm always looking for new people to work with.
