An award-winning writer/director, my short films have screened at festivals such as BFI Flare, LSFF, British Shorts Berlin and Raindance Film Festival, and I have directed/written professional projects for clients such as St Mungo's, The WildLife Trust and AXA. My narrative short films have received funding and accolades from the British Film Institute and my plays have toured the UK with Art Council England funding. My queer comedy sketch web-series Spoon the Prune was broadcast on local television stations across the UK last August and was chosen for the prestigious Tribeca N.O.W. Digital Creators Market 2019.

 

I was chosen for a BFI Writer's Lab in early development on my first feature and have previously been selected for BBC Drama Writing Workshops, a TalentLab at the London Screenwriting Festival, and beat 500 applicants for the chance to work as a script editor for the BFI.

 

I am a member of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew 2020/2021 and have an MA in Screenwriting from Goldsmith's University of London.
