My Story from Twisted50 vol 1: Food Bank
Favourite quote: ‘And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all’ – The Masque of the Red Death
I’m a writer, director, and jobbing musician who has lived in New Jersey, The Netherlands, London, and currently Margate, Kent. My films as writer/co-writer and director include Danger Zone (2004) about a giant killer penis, Night Owl (2011) about a child with a rare skin condition and a vivid imagination, and Lobster (2012), a crustacean version of the Frog Prince. Lobster was made 3 years before the similar-titled movie with Colin Farrell came out.
I’ve also worked in theatre, as writer, director, musician, and sometimes just usher. Currently working on a feature-length monster movie with my talented sister Miranda (Twitter). As part of the band Nyctophonia, I sometimes write songs like “Brain Rot”, and directed the video for it as well: Brain Rot.
Like everyone else, I do boring jobs too, to make ends meat. Once applied for a job cleaning up the remains of dead bodies after accidents or violence, but didn’t make it to interview.
