I write for film and television and other media.


I’m a Development Executive for 87 Films, where I work with creator-showrunners Dudi Appleton & Jim Keeble (SILENT WITNESS; WILD BILL; THORNE) and Executive Producer Patrick Irwin (The Fall; Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell).

I’m also a freelance treatment/pitch designer and general Photoshopperer. I can create pitch decks / brochures / visual selling documents for your film / series / project.

In 2016 I wrote and script edited on The Judge Dee Mysteries, a first-of-its-kind UK-China collaboration between 87 Films and Executive Producer Wang Donghui’s Combo-Drive Pictures (Brotherhood of Blades).

Over the past year I’ve been researching and developing a feature film, The Last Man in Europe, a biographical drama based on the final years of George Orwell and the writing of Nineteen Eighty-Four.

This site is a front window for me as a writer and designer. Links to projects can be found on the Home Page. Please bear in mind I am only moderately/not that good at updating regularly.

I do not have an agent, but am open to conversations.

I grew up in Oxford and studied English at Bristol University. I studied Script Development with the National Film & Television School. In the past you'd have found me working at BBC Drama Production, Bandit Television, Artists Studio/Far Moor Media, Ridley Scott Associates. The rest is on a need-to-know basis. So ask!
