All great acts of genius began with the same consideration: do not be constrained by your present reality. Leonardo de Vinci
I’ve been writing scripts and stuff for many years. My first full length play, Home Fires, was produced by the Dukes theatre, Lancaster in 2009. I’ve also written short scripts for organisations such as Word Market, a South Lakes literature festival and have recently been awarded a grant from the Tom McGrath Trust to assist with the research of my next script.
I gained experience writing, filming and editing short films while at university and made a short documentary – Treacherous Sands – on the cross sands walk over Morecambe Bay for the British Universities Film and Video Council. I’ve also trained in screenwriting and script development with Phil Parker.
