Writer

I have been a writer for over 20 years. My first stage play, a multi-media comedy, was produced at the Roadmender Theatre, Northampton, in 2001. Since then, I have written scripts that have been produced across the UK as well as London, Sydney and Toronto and USA. I have worked with some of the UK's top theatre directors including Sir Alan Ayckbourn and continue to thrive on creating content that I am passionate about.

My play; "Memory:One" premiered at The Kings Head Theatre in London in 2008 to 4 star reviews. In 2010, I took part in the 24 hour play challenge at the Kenneth Moore Theatre, writing a short play in 6 hours. In 2011, I had a number of short plays produced throughout London and 2012 saw a professional reading of my comedy; 'Killing Edward', read at Samuel French's bookshop, starring Downton Abbey's Phyllis Logan.
 
My short comedy 'Vent' won the audience award at the Pint sized play festival in 2014 and has since been published and performed around the world, as well as being purchased as a set text for the creative writing degree at a British University.

During 2013, I developed a number of screenplays, one of which I developed and pitched in person to Roland Emmerich's studio 'Centropolis Entertainment', who produced films such as 'Independence Day', 'Stargate', '2012' and the 'Day after Tomorrow'.
 
In 2014, I started collaborating with a well known British actor and comedian, writing a TV comedy/horror.
 
2016/17 saw the completion of three commissions to write a feature length Sci-fi Horror, an action thriller and psychological thriller for British production company 'Light Films', filming to commence on these projects mid 2019.
