    About me

    I am an experienced writer and director of theatre, recently relocated to London from Leeds. Last year, I founded a theatre company 'Junk' with two colleagues, and have worked as the artistic director for the company since. We have produced alternative new-writing, and have received excellent reviews from Leeds publications 'The Gryphon' and 'The Scribe'. My first play in Leeds, 'Carbon Copy' won 'The Scribe's 2018 award for Best New Writing. I have relocated in order to further pursue work as a writer for film and theatre.

    In addition to my work in theatre, I have over fifteen years experience as a musician and songwriter, playing in various ensembles, from Leeds University Symphony Orchestra, to a two man synth-pop project. My experience in music has taught me further skills such as music video editing and directing, studio engineering and mixing, and composition.
