I am an award-winning script writer, spoken word artist and writing mentor based in Glasgow, who has written a variety of work for stage and screen. I hold an MA with distinction in TV Fiction Writing from Glasgow Caledonian University, and an MA Hons in Theatre and Slavonic Studies from the University of Glasgow.
Most recently, I have been working as a storywriter for BBC Scotland’s long running drama River City, and I am currently working on a shadow script for them. Since 2009, I have facilitated workshops for various youth theatre groups in Glasgow such as PEEK and Toonspeak Young People’s Theatre, specialising in scriptwriting, performance poetry and film-making. My focus is always on empowerment, skills development, good story-telling and fun! Over the last few years I have lectured and tutored screenwriting at several Universities too. Read more about it in my Teaching section.
As well as performing spoken word regularly at a variety of nights, I am one half of Sonnet Youth, a Glasgow based duo who curate and perform monthly spoken word events. I am a regular contributor to online platform BBC The Social and recently made it on to the Social’s top 20 people to watch on the Scottish digital scene for the List Magazine.
