After working for Miramax Films in London, Cannes and New York my first TV script THE GREAT MCGINTY won the Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award at the International Emmy Awards.

I wrote and directed a short film for the UK Film Council called BAGHDAD EXPRESS, which played at festivals worldwide. Other shorts include THE MARIONETTE'S DREAM (shortlisted for the Sundance London Short Film Competition) and my latest short film TOUCH, which won the Grand Prize at the Virgin Media Shorts awards (jurors included Shane Meadows, David Tennant, and film critic James King).

I've written for TV (BBC's THE DUMPING GROUND) and stage (WILD HORSES) and am currently working with the BFI on a new short film, on a play commission for the RSC, and was also recently selected by the BBC for their New Directors scheme.
