I like to tell stories...

A bit about me

I’m a freelance writer, artist and narrative designer working in the arts, culture and creative sector. I love nothing more than spinning ideas into engaging stories and experiences, whatever the format. If it's playful and immersive – I'm there!


Over the last 10+ years I’ve worked with award-winning creative teams on all sorts of story-driven content, from animation, to games, to the BBC's first ever augmented reality app. While at the same time, pursuing my own creative experimentation in fiction, printmaking and AI poetry... among other things!

At the heart of my approach is playful collaboration, characterful writing and a lifelong love for the craft of storytelling.

Some things I do

Scriptwriting and creative treatments.

Narrative design and game writing.

Copywriting, UX/UI writing, tutorials and script editing for AR, VR and immersive digital experiences.
