My interest in the written word spans a number of genres, from journalism to copy writing. I have worked as a researcher and audio-transcriber at the Guardian Newspaper and City University. I currently produce copy, articles and social media content for Almond Marketing.
My first full-length play Shooting Star received development workshops in London and New York City and reached the long list for BBC SCRIPTROOM8. My second full-length play Coconut is an extension of the very successful monologue of the same name, performed as part of Ladylogue 2014 and is currently in development with The Thelmas. I have also been long listed by the T.S Eliot Commission and the Old Vic 12 for different play ideas.
As part of the ensemble @wearehyphenated I am the writer for Home is Where… an ongoing multimedia verbatim play inspired by stories of Third Culture Kids. We received support from Camden Peoples’ Theatre and RichMix in 2016, presenting work-in-progress performances at both venues. The piece continues its development.
I was one of the first writers to be included in the Almeida Theatre Projects team, working with young people in schools to script performances inspired by the main stage production: Game by Mike Bartlett. This is a mode of working I thoroughly enjoy and currently implement with the Space’s youth group, having scripted their Christmas 2016 show Michael and the Storybook.
My first love was poetry and I have been published and exhibited both in the UK and New York City. Dusk was a part of the National Poetry Anthology in 2005 and more recently Secondary Thoughts to Grieving was exhibited at New York’s Bronfman Gallery as part of an exhibition entitled Loss.
