Staff profile picture fallback silhouette
I am passionately interested in storytelling, and how screen stories are told and made. I have developed film scripts through to production and am very experienced in teaching screenwriting.


I have worked in film making and film education. I have developed and produced short films and worked at film festivals. I have taught Film and Media Studies and examined A Level Film Studies. I now teach a range of undergraduate modules focussing on the film industry and writing for the screen.
