Corporate drone by day. Screenwriter by night and on lunch breaks, the toilet, etc... I am a student of film and story, learning and breaking the rules. My script, A Girl to Love, has gathered four recommends and recently placed in the quarter finals of Scriptapalooza's 2020. In 2021 I was hired to write a feature script for a production company in New York/Scotland.  

I like to write films that connect with our humanity through the characters that walk among us -- like the next Punch Drunk Love or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
