About Me

I am an award-winning writer, actor, and dramaturg.

I graduated from Goldsmiths College in 2011 with a Masters’ Degree in Writing for Performance, and in 2012 from Faber Academy: Writing a Novel, tutored by Esther Freud.

I studied acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama from 2008 – 2009.


My full-length play Family Ties was produced at the Network Theatre, London, and produced short plays include Blinded By (The Space, London); Forget Me Not (Tristan Bates Theatre); One (RADA); Violent Night (New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth: winner of the Jilted Generation competition); Prisoners of the Truth (Theatre 503, Frequency Theatre, Sydenham Arts Festival); Slash (Young Actors’ Theatre, RADA); Time of the Wolf, an adaptation of The Ages of Mankind from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, staged at Brixton Market; and Viviana, a monologue performed at the Komedia, Brighton (Short Story Studio).

My short plays for teenagers have also been used regularly on the Actors’ Foundation course at RADA.

I also run a script feedback service for other writers and production companies who value practical feedback delivered with sensitivity and within a quick turnaround time.
