I am a playwright and film writer/director.
I worked as an actor at a range of venues including the Hampstead Theatre, Bristol Old Vic, Manchester Royal Exchange and in film and television.
I began writing with an attachment to Paines Plough and Channel Four as part of 'Future Perfect.' Professional productions have included 'You Were After Poetry' at the Hightide Festival, 'Boiling Frogs' at Southwark Playhouse and 'Punch' at the Underbelly, Edinburgh. I am an associate artist with both The Factory and Company of Angels.
Having developed and edited the Web-Series 'I Gotta Be Me', I have since begun working as a video editor, creating work with a range of companies including BBC, CBBC and various independents.
Alongside writing I teach drama to all ages, from 3 year olds to MA students, and have worked in schools across London providing after school drama provision and entry into LAMDA examinations.
