Countless nights infront of the telly and countless days playing make believe in the playground, I eventually became a slave to fiction and a chronic fantasist. When I hit my late teens I realised I could put these delusions to use as a Writer.

My main aim is to begin my career in the Film and TV industry. I young and eager and I have a track record of developing long lasting professional relationships with people I work with. I am hoping to develop more relationships in the right industry in the near future.

Most of my current experience has come from my time studying for my degree in Film & TV Production. I was the Editor of my teams first student film Alone. I learned many skills in editing and final cut pro that I hope to develop in the future.

I was the director and writer for a short documentary called Icurse About the urban legend surround a cursed piece of art in Carlisle. In my final year I produced a second documentary about a trans woman name Samantha as she let us follow her during a part of her journey into womanhood. Being Sam was accepted and exhibited on BBC Three Fresh website  for their 2014 brief among entries by our countries most promising young filmmakers.

My current goals are to find my entry into the industry and to climb the ladder. I am open as a freelance writer, producer or any other entry level role where I can learn from the best and develop new and useful skills.
