I’ve been writing my whole life and have recently transitioned into writing for the screen. To support this move into the screen industry I am completing an Advanced Diploma of Screenwriting from RMIT, which will add to the Graduate Diploma of Professional Writing from Deakin University I already hold.

My screen stories are rich, complex and character driven. I combine my experience as a visual creative – as a professional photographer and videographer – with my decades’ long experience as a professional writer to create stories that reward the viewer visually and emotionally. My current slate includes original feature films, adapted feature films, short films and a dark comedy series. I am a member of the Australian Writers Guild.

This website contains examples of a range of my writing. I hope you enjoy my work.

From the essay > Streets of Hanoi: Unfocused

In Hanoi they drive on the right hand side of the road. Mostly. Lane markings are merely a suggestion and footpaths – such as they are – are very much the domain of scooter parking. In between the parked Hondas, Yamahas and knock-off Chinese-made machines locals make their living selling, cooking, crafting and repairing.

There are more than a thousand restaurants in Hanoi. The streets of the Old Quarter are home to many small eateries where fresh produce is shaped by expert women tending knives, woks, pots and fryers to extract exacting flavours from the dishes they prepare. Like witches, each cook has a recipe they’re renowned for and draw audiences to their eatery through the art and alchemy of steam and fire and fresh ingredients that attract diners to the short plastic seats huddled together between the motor scooters that crowd the footpaths…

In addition to my screenwriting I also write fiction, freelance non-fiction pieces and poetry, which you’ll find on the pages below.
