About me.

Anchor 1

I am a dramatist based in London, writing for stage and screen.

I trained at LAMDA and am a graduate of the Royal Court Writers' Group and Channel 4 Screenwriters' Programme. I'm currently a recipient of the Writers' Guild New Play Commissioning Scheme.

I tell dark stories with warm hearts that find the epic in the everyday, look at big ideas through small lenses, and are preferably a little bit strange.

Featured Work.
