About Me

I am a trained freelance writer and script supervisor with a First-Class degree in Creative Writing from Warwick University. I specialise in writing commissions for theatre, screenplays, and poetry.


When I graduated I threw myself into life as a freelance writer which led to my work being published by Lucent Dreaming, Streetcake Magazine, Substantially Unlimited, Re-Side, Discretionary Love, Olney Magazine, and Blue Marble Review. 


Then, Pentabus theatre accepted me onto their young writers' programme. There I wrote a short play for professional production at The Courtyard, Hereford. I have also written theatre for Feral Productions, Warwick University, and the International Network of Italian Theatre (with performances currently in development).


The Hive Collective included my latest play in their showcase, which sold out. Following that performance, I was offered several exciting theatre and screenwriting opportunities, which I am working on now. Plus, I gave a number of podcast and radio interviews about my writing, including speaking to BBC Radio Shropshire.


Over the summer I was offered a scholarship at Swanwick Writers Summer School where I further developed my craft. I also took my play “Baggy Bra” to Brighton when Scratch Meet invited me to perform it at The Rose Hill.


I am proud to hold a variety of shortlists for my theatre and screenwriting, awarded by organisations such as Rural Arts, Time To Say Thanks, Beardance Theatre, SuperHi, and DYSPLA. 


It was through writing that I stumbled upon script supervising and found that I absolutely love it. I was invited to Pinewood Studios for a ScreenSkills, BFI, and GBCT script supervisor training course. I have worked as the lead script supervisor for Crawley Film Initiative’s TV drama miniseries, Sumin Kim’s latest short film, and DT Film Productions and Silent D Pictures’ musical drama feature film. I look forward to more script supervisor work scheduled in the new year.
