I’m here for the gritty movies, the rebellious movies, the b-movies, and the hangout movies, those features that dare to be good old fashioned entertainment and pack a punch harder than their budgets would suggest.

I love pulp and exploitation, car chases and gunplay, but also depth and themes that resound with viewers at the core of their being. I like dialogue that crackles and has weight behind the words. I love scenes that twist and turn as characters vie for power or fall for one another.

With director Shane Stanley during production of Break Even
Riding on the hero boat “Fair Warning” with Shane Stanley during production of our action feature "Break Even.'

2012 was the year I started writing from here in Staffordshire, England and it’s been a hell of a ride. Following one of my first scripts being featured by Amazon Studios, I cut my teeth for the next five years writing shorts and giving them away to up-and-coming filmmakers. Now I’m moving into independent film scene with an LA based feature currently in post-production staring Tasya Teles, James Callis, and Steve Guttenberg and another in development.


On set with Steve Guttenberg after he brought my character Lance to life.

I write what I call nextploitation; hard-hitting, in your face content with a nod to the past and one eye on the future. I’m talking progressive values mixed with nostalgic hedonism. My twist? I write female characters, often as leads, that don’t suck because I care deeply about my characters being the real deal.


Hanging with Rich “RB” Botto, CEO of Stage 32 while in Los Angeles.

I’m all about the craft and all about the love. It doesn’t matter to me if it’s Tarantino or Twilight, I always look for the good in everything. I’m not here to take centre stage. I’m here to knuckle down and prove myself in the hope the teams I join go on to grow with our audience.

I’m here to help change the industry too, in any way I can and for the better. Frustrated by the prohibitive costs and exclusive cliques that screenwriters and filmmakers face when trying to source or market scripts, I started the script hosting website you're reading this on right now. Together, we’re moving the needle and getting stronger every day.

That sound cool? If so, let’s talk.
