About

I'm a screenwriter, ghostwriter (Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster), and culture journalist (Dazed, New York Magazine, LA Times).

 

I gained my Masters degree in Writing for Screen and Television at USC, and was granted admission to the Writers Guild of America in 2017 for “Rothko”, a script I wrote about painter Mark Rothko. 

 

 

I have authored and ghostwritten several books including Kindle bestseller "Dirty Rocker Boys" (Gallery Books), "Kicking Up Dirt" (Harper Collins), "Let There be GWAR" (Gingko). 

 

My scripts in development include:

 

 

“Mimi and Ulrich", a desert-based film comedy, under option by Blonde to Black Films. 

 

 

“Granuaile”, a historical drama set in 16th century Ireland, adapted from a story by Siobhan Fahey of Bananarama/Shakespear’s Sister. 

 

 

“Odd Women” a limited hour-long series about a group of Victorian single women trying to survive in the city.

 

 

“Angels”, an hour-long drama inspired by the magickal adventures of Elizabethan alchemists Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley.

 

 

I'm passionate about independent cinema  (favorites include "Withnail and I” and "My Own Private Idaho”); also, underground music, British and French couture, modern art, and the written word, from Anaïs Nin to Raymond Chandler.
