My first novel, The Lightman System, will be published by Wrecking Ball Press in June.  I'm working on a new book.

I’ve written the scripts for the four short films I have directed:

 

Elsewhere, an adaptation of my own short story Awaydays.  The story was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize, and the film screened at the London Short Film Festival.

 

I directed my scripts Circadia and The Weather In The House for LAMDA's department of Screen and Audio Performance.

 

I’ve written the original book and lyrics for a musical of Carnival of the Animals.  This ran at London’s Riverside Studios, where it was received with enthusiasm.  

I’ve written three feature scripts, Navigation, Escapement and the feature version of Circadia.  I’m working on the next.

Please have a look at my CV for more detail.

 

LAMDA

 

LAMDA’s Department of Screen & Audio Performance commissions short films.  The purpose is to showcase the screen talents of their graduating actors.

I’ve written eight of these scripts for LAMDA.

 

A selection of the films can be seen on their own page.
