My name is Tommy, and I'm a screenwriter. 

I've written and produced several short films, starring; Bill Nighy, Frances Barber, Annette Badland and Alice Barry. 

For the last couple of years I've worked for ITV at the Coronation Street and Emmerdale tours, working as both a tour guide and script writer/editor. I've also had experience working in the Emmerdale Script Department. 

In 2014, I won an Ideastap monologue competition, and so far in 2016 I've been longlisted for both the BBC Writersroom competition and the Columnist competition. 

I am currently seeking representation.
