Welcome to my website. Take a look around.

Cuppa? What d'you take?

I write stories for performance - on stage, screen, or audio.

I aim to write stories that release more love into the world. My stories explore the darkness and light of what it means to be human. They invite audiences to feel, to question, to confront, to connect.

I’m winner of the Kenneth Branagh Award for New Drama Writing, a Fuse playwright with Sheffield Theatres, and member of Playwrights One development programme at West Yorkshire Playhouse. I’ve been shortlisted for the OffWestEnd.com Adopt a Playwright award (2017) and long-listed for The Old Vic 12 (2016).

Four of my plays have been produced by Windsor Fringe Drama Award, Beach Hut Theatre Company and Stephen Joseph theatre with Scarborough libraries.

Nine scripts have had rehearsed readings and development through Sheffield Theatres, Stephen Joseph theatre, Beach Hut theatre company, Script Yorkshire, and Springboard Scriptwriters.

I’m writer and narrator for SubSeaTV, an award-winning wildlife filmmaking team, and I’m a winner and finalist in two short screenplay competitions.

Hands you a cuppa...
