ROUND THE WORLD
IN 6O PLAYS
I'm an award-winning writer of radio and theatre plays, short-stories, podcasts and video screenplays. All of my 60+ scripts have been staged or broadcast. I'm also a digital storyteller, creating interactive narratives for VR and gamified worlds.
Writing is exploration. Experience the world as an octopus, a bee, a fox hunter, a musician from Diego Garcia, a companion-robot or a 130 year old woman. Enter a carnivorous beach-hut, swim The English Channel or orbit Earth with Gagarin.
My Radio 4 plays are often recorded on location, my theatre work site-specific. I like to work collaboratively, blending script, documentary and improvisation.
I've given MA Creative Writing seminars and run courses at the Bishopsgate Institute.
p.s I love my job!
