About

I am a writer based in Cornwall. I moved here from London three years ago chasing the twin dreams of living near the sea and being able to afford things.

I studied English and Drama at Goldsmiths College. I have previously worked with the Soho Theatre in both their Comedy and Writing Lab programs. I have studied TV Writing at Gotham Writer’s Workshop, joke writing with the Second City, and completed the selective-entry Curtis Brown Creative three-month online Novel Writing course in February 2020.

For three years from 2012 I wrote a bad joke every day, gaining an online following of nearly 100,000 in the process. I was also active on the standup comedy scene in both London and New York, before coming to terms with the fact that I much preferred writing to performing.

In 2016 wrote, directed, and produced The Miserables, a parody musical which won an award for Best Comedy as well as being nominated for 6 other prizes at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

My work has been heard on several series of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack. I have  also written for Mslexia Magazine, Refinery29, Broadway Baby, and The Overtake.
