Favourite quote: ‘Being a writer is like having homework every night for the rest of your life’ -Lawrence Kasdan


Writer and Director of the short film “South East Cleaning Services” (2010).


Edinburgh International Film Festival Programmer for fiction feature films.


PGD in Screenwriting from Screen Academy Scotland.


A screenwriter from an early age it was advice from the crime novelist Ian Rankin which persuaded me to start writing short stories and novels.


When I wrote screenplays they were for the films I wanted to watch, now I write the stories I want to read. I like my stories to be extreme, whatever the genre, whether that be dark humour, or extreme horror or thrillers.


Having completed my first novel, I am currently working on releasing a collection of short stories as well as starting on my second novel.
