I am a Manchester based Writer/Director.
My background is as a multidisciplinary artist with a passion for collaboration across art forms and my work spans sculptural installations, Theatre and Film.
My first narrative short film, Time Goes Nowhere (2009), funded by NW Vision, was accepted onto the BBC Film Network and since then my shorts have screened nationally & internationally at over 40 film festivals, including BAFTA and BIFA qualifying, receiving nominations and awards in various categories. My BFI Network funded short ‘MUG’ which started its festival run in June 2022, has now screened at 23 national/international festivals including BIFA qualifying MANIFF and Women X and gaining multiple accolades, including ‘Best film to pass the Bechdel Test’. My new short film ‘GOBSTOPPER’ is currently in post production, due to be released on the festival circuit later in the year.
I am drawn to writing about characters who dance on the edge of what society perceives as acceptable.
I am a passionate member of the KINOKABARET movement.
