I love storytelling and writing is one of the best parts. I am currently working on a few projects such as; a one woman theatre show called "Forgetting Mandela", about the displacement of South Africans after the end of Apartheid, and a short film called "Kitchens by David", about an artist whose creative confidence is redefined when she takes a job as a PA.
I also love writing with my sister. Our most recent short film script "Call Me J" was shortlisted for the Center Frame GET IT MADE 2022 competition and we are now co-writing a feature film called "Lucia", about an unassuming prisoner whose magical drawings change her life and the lives of those around her.
As with most writers, I have loads of other ideas and scripts in the wings and I look forward to bringing them all to life.
With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Media Studies & Print Media I started script editing with Lift Off Global Network for their screenplay submissions. As head script judge and content writer for their team, it was an amazing experience to read hundreds of submissions from so many talented writers from all over the world and be exposed to different styles, concepts and stages of development. Having also worked as an actor, producer and director it gives me a great advantage to look at a script from other angles.
I help writers with:
marketability and more...
The way I work is to read what you've already written and make notes, giving reasons and suggestions which you can apply to the next draft.
Sometimes all you need is another pair of eyes!!

With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Media Studies & Print Media I started copywriting in my spare time writing reviews, web content, product descriptions, SOP documents and articles.
I have since written for Lift-Off Global Network, Kew Little Pigs and various B2B companies as well as creating manuals and procedural documents for the utilities and hospitality industries. I thoroughly enjoy writing about film, script writing, acting, animals/pets and experiences.
I also really enjoy designing the layouts for all my articles and content unless otherwise specified.
