Screenwriting

 “Extremely original, and very clever.” – 13horror.com

“Gritty and surprising, and feels unlike anything currently on TV.” – blklst.com

I love screenwriting! I’ve have picked up some accolades since dedicating myself to creating material fulltime in 2015.

In 2018 my TV pilot Small Town (with co-writer Ella Roby) was selected for development funding through Scripted Ink, Shane Brennan’s screenwriting initiative based in Australia. My short film Fingers was inducted into the Australian Writer’s Guild’s Pathways Showcase Program in 2016.
