I’m a writer and actor. Listen to my Radio 4 sitcom Absolutely Delish (Grazing) on iTunes. I recently solved a murder on primetime TV (DCI Banks on ITV 2014). In 2012 I played Ellen in a Radio 3 adaptation of Nosferatu, and created Bee Detective, a children’s show for London 2012 Festival (Tin Bath Theatre company).
I wrote and performed stage plays WHEN TO RUN (Renaissance one UK tour/Edinburgh/Soho Theatre), and FIGHT FACE (Hammersmith Lyric). I’ve also written and performed thought pieces for Radio 4’s Front Row and London Nights series.
In 2008 I set up Tin Bath Theatre Company with director Gemma Fairlie. I met Gemma after an introduction from Nina Steiger, whilst on the Soho Theatre Writers Attachment Programme in 2005-2006.
Radio 4 plays include CARBON CLEANSING and WHEN TO RUN.
I won a place on the 2011 Channel 4 Screenwriting course and am currently writing a stage play co commission by Graeae and Plymouth Theatre Royal & Drum.
