Screenwriting

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

In 2018 my horror/mystery 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.

Also in 2018, I was selected alongside Chris Burke, Peter Matessi, Jessica Paine and Ella Roby to travel to Los Angeles to attend the Charlie’s Lab Pilot Program a joint initiative between Australians in Film, Scripted Ink and AWG Pathways.

Led by industry professionals, the course included intimate talks and conversations with some of LA’s most interesting insiders, creatives and executives who are part of the working machine that is Hollywood.

My short horror/adventure film screenplay Fingers was inducted into the Australian Writer’s Guild’s Pathways Showcase Program in 2016. I was made part of their My Slate initiative in 2019,  designed for screenwriters who have had more than one project accepted into the program.

Now represented by The Fleming Agency, I’m developing TV and film projects on my own and with co-writer Ella Roby for the Australian and international market.

I’m a regular collaborator with local filmmakers and have had several of my short scripts produced, ranging from black comedy to dystopian sci-fi, including A Real Buzz (2015), Moving On (2016) Keep Rolling (2018), Transfer (2019) and Unravelled (2019) which have gone on to screen at film festivals in Australia and overseas.
