I’ve begun a new life as a writer, after a career in documentary filmmaking. With support from former BBC colleagues, the Arts Council of Wales, and new friends in the theatre, I signed up for the MA in Scriptwriting at the University of East Anglia, where I’m enjoying being tutored by luminous writers including Steve Waters, Ben Musgrave, Sian Evans and Timberlake Wertenbaker.

When Russia invaded Ukraine, I wrote a short play in response to the war - Three Mothers - in March 2022 which was performed at a university fundraiser on campus at the Sainsbury’s Visual Art Centre, and is published in an anthology of student work.

In April 2023, my one act play Damselfly, about river pollution and species loss told through farmers, fertilisers and fairies, was given a script-in-hand performance at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff. Plays in development include Little Man, a 9 year old boy’s experience of domestic violence featuring fantastical characters from his imagination.
