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.
Last year I worked as a storywriter for series 17 and 18 for BBC Scotland’s long running drama River City, and I have recently worked as a storyliner on a block of twenty episodes for Lime Picture’s soap Hollyoaks.

I am co-host and curator of Sonnet Youth, a Glasgow based poetry events company who run spoken word events. We’ve curated sets for Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, BBC 6 Music, Hidden Door Festival and O2 ABC. Our monthly night is kicking off again this October at Drygate brewery. I’m also a regular contributor to online platform BBC The Social and last year I featured on the Social’s top 20 people to watch on the Scottish digital scene for the List Magazine.
