Hello!

I’m an ex-copywriter turned author, passionate about comedy, mental health and science fiction.

My first book Burnout Survival Kit was published by Bloomsbury and my short stories have appeared in Popshot, The Moth, and other literary magazines. I also teach workshops on screenwriting, creative writing, freelancing skills and battling burnout.

On the big screen, my shorts and feature doc have won awards at major festivals. My screenwriting has been shortlisted in BBC, BAFTA Rocliffe and Channel 4 competitions —and two of my feature screenplays are currently in development.

Read my interview with Script Angel here.
