London playwright. Winner of the 1865 Writer-in-Residence, The Langham, London, with "The Armour" produced by Defibrillator within the Langham, 2015. One of the writers for Headlong's "Decade" (2011), directed by Rupert Gould with Robert Icke. Part of "Life for Beginners" (Theatre503, 2012) and "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" (Bush Theatre/Latitude, 2008). Other plays include "The Final Shot" (Theatre503, 2007), "The Captive" (Finborough Theatre, 2011). Shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize 2008.

My play "Keith" was showcased at Playwriting Australia's National Play Festival, Adelaide, June 2015. In my cover photo, that's a picture of the cast telling the audience to applaud the play. 

Over the years I have also worked in many different sorts of jobs to support the playwriting, including bookselling, retail management, box office, admin administration, script reading, alongside participating in a less successful campaign where I was paid to stand around a university dressed as a giant green condom.
