I work with directors, producers, big brands and agencies, generating engaging content and spellbinding stories. I've had my work published in national magazines and newspapers, and broadcast on mainstream TV.
In a previous career I worked as a freelance factual producer, but for the last six years I've been writing. I started with short stories, moved on to short film and am now working on TV drama.
In November 2016 I was awarded a place on the BBC Shadow Scheme for Casualty, starting in 2017, and my script DIAMOND is currently a semi-finalist of the Final Draft Big Break Contest.
I'm a stone's throw from London.

I’ve worked in the courts in Kenya and Ghana, where I saw money change hands between people it shouldn’t, and chickens relieve themselves on judges’ desks. I’ve attended Security Council meetings in the UN in New York, filmed in the Moroccan desert, and sung Tippet in Jerusalem Cathedral.
After I graduated, I set up a successful PR company. For ten years I was one of four founding trustees of an education project that touched the lives of thousands of children in rural Kenya.
