I've been writing since 2013 when I published my first novel, a heist thriller called To Catch A Storm which was inspired by a Jean-Luc Godard quote - "All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun". So with his starting point, I took a girl, gave her a gun, plus a bag of cash, the keys to a Lambo and sicked a nasty gang of oligarch's thugs on her. It felt like watching a movie as I wrote it, except I could make the plot go where I wanted it to go. The whole thing gave me the bug, and now I escape into the worlds I write most days. 

More recently, I've shifted focus to writing for the screen and written a feature-length horror film. Reboot is my love letter to the 80's 'video nasties' (as we called them in the UK) and slasher films that haunted my teenage dreams. It was written specifically to be shot on a tight budget with a contained single location and small cast. 

More recently I have written a gay 'rom-com' called 'Alexander, the Gay' which flips the traditional gay coming out story on its head. The lead character couldn't give a fuck who knows that he fucks men and that men fuck him. Alexander is a gay anti-hero trapped in the closet by the powerful people around him. 

I am also adapting my first novel To Catch A Storm to a 6 part streaming series. I have the pilot down so far.

I love being busy and I try to write every day. Happy to chat about collaborations, optioning and if you want further info or have questions about any of my scripts, drop me a line.
