Working with exotic animals, teaching in China, senior roles in NZ health and - for the past 10 years - working with those from refugee backgrounds newly arrived in New Zealand. newly arrived. An inveterate reader, movie and theatre goer I have enjoyed indulging my passion for writing in poetry, short stories and a Chinese travelogue. I have been working on a screenplay for a while now and to this end want to learn as much as is possible. I am currently working on Aaron Sorkin's screenwriting Masterclass and know this forthcoming class with Robert McKee will be beneficial. Online training is a boon to those of us at the bottom of the world; not always possible to jump on a plane to attend a course.
