I am a writer from the countryside of the West Midlands. Defying the calm (and boredom), I spent my childhood fantasising about dramas, inspired by moody landscapes and stories from classic writers, documentary-makers, and musicians. With the nearest shop a 15-minute trek, I dreamt of uniting these influences to offer stories with a fresh perspective.
Inspired by stories of outsiders and characters searching for 'home', I have written three feature films and two short films. These range from stories of longing in an alternate lockdown to a world war epic set in the final days of Mussolini's fascist Italy.
I believe that narratives about these themes hold the key to understanding the experiences of all people. Working and produced versions of these films can be found here (click the script header to open) -->
