About My Job

I am here to help aspiring screenwriters, giving them career advice and mentoring. You can get in touch with me via email, book a 1-1 mentoring session or attend one of my monthly virtual Q&A sessions via Zoom.

My Advice

"Having that PDF you’re proud of, ready to attach in an email, is the most important thing for an emerging writer. It can sometimes feel like you’re writing in a vacuum when starting out. It’s hard to stay motivated without a light at the end of the tunnel, but you never know when your opportunity will come, who you might randomly connect with. Because with enough patience and determination, one day you will get the ‘send me some work’ offer from an industry professional, producer or agent. And that is why you invest all those hours writing alone."
