BACKGROUND

I started screen writing in 1999 with my final university film retri6ution. It was pretty ropey. Comprising of lame serial killers, ball scratching coppers and a lot of angry people.
 
That said, it got me my first paid writing job.
 
In 1999 and 2000 I wrote the award winning independent drama’s Smacked Up and Fired Up. Both featured as community film case studies in the BFI’s publication ‘Being Seen, Being Heard’.
 
In 2003 and 2004 I wrote the Gospel Entertainment Music Awards ceremony script for BBC 1 and BBC radio and was commissioned to write independent dramas About a Pig (2003) and The Get Out (2004).
 
During this time I was also involved in writing for theatre. Supported by the Arts Council England, in 2004 I co-wrote Branded a new play for KS3 drama which also went into production and toured in the West Midlands. I also adapted Jacqueline Wilson’s books Vicky Angel and Suitcase Kid for the ‘W-Factor’ at the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton and wrote 2 plays for ‘14/48 – the worlds quickest theatre festival’.
 
From 2005 I concentrated on writing for screen and have been commissioned to write numerous independent dramas for teenage audiences, including The Universal Law (2007), Normals (2008) which won the bronze drama award at the US International Film and TV Festival and IVCA awards in 2009, zombie film Colossal Terror (2009), Truth (2010) and Beyond the Gates (2011).
 
Short films include BBC big screen broadcasted Give and Take (2005), The Crooked Dolls House (2010) Spam & Mash and War Kids (2010) and Ashes(2012) Doug (2013) (co-writer) and Couple Confine (2015).
 
My focus has turned to episodic work with Award winning Web Series, DisPossess (Series 1 and 2. Some webisodes co-written) (2015 & 2016) but naturally short films/dramas for young audiences still playing a part of my portfolio and recent films include Ruby’s Revenge – The Mystery of the Letter (2018).
