My Favorite Quote

Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

About Me

I came to screenwriting through my Film and Media degree at Birkbeck (2001-2005). I first met Lucy Hay when she was my script editor on a screenwriting initiative at Metlab and we've been friends ever since. An early draft of PENNY DREADFUL was a quarter-finalist in the Screenwriting Expo 2007 and featured on
In 2012, my short playscript COUP was staged at the White Bear Theatre, Kennington as part of a festival of new writing. I've worked for a computer software company, proofing forty software manuals, as well as essays, mission statements, screenwriting manuals, novels and scripts, for clients in the UK and abroad. I am Associate Editor for a listings magazine to be launched in January 2016.
