When I go into schools I often talk about screenwriting. Like writing novels, it wasn't something I thought I could do.  I love watching TV and films. I even did a masters degree where I studied race and representation in Hollywood. Making a film or tv show is a lot more collaborative than writing a novel as there are a lot more people involved. You can see some of my experiences in the past few years. I would love to adapt a screen version of Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths and Keep Dancing, Lizzie Chu! I'm currently working on a 30 min TV pilot and with script development support from Connor Richmond from Two Cities (Blue Lights). For screenwriting opportunities please get in touch with me directly via my contact form. 


Some of my favourite TV shows in recent years:

Kim's Convenience (Netflix), Shrinking (Apple TV), Beef (Netflix), Back to Life (BBC), Motherland (BBC), We Are Lady Parts (Channel 4), Never Have I Ever (Netflix), Fleabag (BBC), Outlaws (BBC), Detectorists (BBC), Lockwood and Co (Netflix), Baby Reindeer (Netflix), Severance (Apple TV), Slow Horses (Apple TV)
