I am a screenwriter and playwright based in Oxford.
I am currently working on two original TV series projects, including SUMMONED with Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions, and MALTESER with The Ink Factory and Cinestaan.
Earlier this year, my feature film script GANGA MATA was also optioned by Cinestaan Film Company.
I am also working on a new theatre commission with Rifco Theatre and Oxford Playhouse.
My background is in theatre. My work has been staged at Derby Theatre, Soho Theatre, Oxford Playhouse, Burton Taylor Studio, The Bunker, the Pleasance, the Old Fire Station, Pegasus Theatre and Spotlight Studios. I have written five full length plays as well as various short screenplays, plays and a radio play. I have previously been Writer-On-Attachment with the Oxford Playhouse as well as Associate Artist at Pegasus Theatre. I have also been on the Soho Writers Lab as well as the Royal Court Writers Group.
My plays have been longlisted for Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award and the Papatango 2017 Writers Prize. Last year, I became a finalist of the BBC Writersroom Drama Room 12, as well as the Papatango Resident Playwright position.
Last year I was commissioned to write BEYOND SHAME, which received a short studio run at Derby Theatre. This year my gig play, CORROSIVE will run at Pegasus Theatre and tour local secondary schools in Oxfordshire. I have also received two seed-commissions from the Bush Theatre (HOLD ON) and Rifco Arts (HEART ATTACK).
Last year, I completed my 2-year MA studying Screenwriting at the National Film and Television School, with a joint scholarship from Channel 4 and Toledo Productions (Duncan Kenworthy, Four Weddings Producer). Prior to this, I graduated with a First Class Degree in BA English Language and Literature at University College London, as well as an MA in Film and Television Studies at Warwick University.
