About Me

I am a screenwriter and development assistant. 

I am currently writing a feature film adaptation of a children's fantasy novel and have a psychological horror feature in development. My recent feature script Scatter reached the Quarter Finals of both the Screenwriting Goldmine and BlueCat Screenplay Competitions 2015-2016.

I was development executive at Rocliffe Ltd where I assisted in the coordination of the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competitions. I have worked as a script consultant at a leading international script consultancy, a development intern and personal assistant at a leading film production company and as a runner for a feature film, a Nike commercial and Leeds International Film Festival. 

I have an MA in Filmmaking from the Northern Film School and a degree in English from the University of Leeds where I directed the theatrical adaptation of Festen

In addition to my feature commissions I am also developing my next spec projects.
