What do I do? 

I am the author of The Scale of Things for Quadrille Books, with illustrations by Dav Tanguy.

I write feature film scripts and currently have two optioned and in development.

I write food copy for Cook + Thief and restaurant and food event reviews for Foodepedia 

I devise broadcast formats for Wildcard Films.

I create copy, bidwriting copy, creative and viral content for various digital agencies.

I write for and tutor at The Open College of the Arts.

I consult within design and architecture.

My feature screenplay, The Fallout, has been optioned after advancing to the quarter finals of the 2020 PAGE awards contest and another, Liquid and Dust, has been optioned and is currently in development.

As well as developing factual entertainment for Wildcard Films, I have contributed to various scripts, commercials and branded and social media content for UKTV, Hoot Comedy, Gaggle, Blank Frank, Viral Factory and RL Animation.

I created a foundation course for The Open College of the Arts and I tutor online at Foundation and Degree levels. I have also taught at The Royal College of Art, Chelsea School of Arts and Bournemouth Arts Institute. I’ve written for The Architects Journal, devised and hosted educational workshops at The Design Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and The Royal Academy of Arts in London, as well as across Europe and Asia. I also hosted a Sorrell Foundation Masterclass based on ‘scale’.

As Head of Modelmaking and Photography with architect Lord Richard Rogers, my work won awards in The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition and has been exhibited in The Pompidou Centre, Paris, MOMA, New York, The Beijing Capital Museum and in The Architectural Biennale, Venice. I continue to consult on selected projects.

In my spare time, I write and (very occasionally) perform poetry.

I am always keen to bring my experience into new and interesting creative areas.
