Early life & Education
I grew up in Kenya and Namibia before returning to Bristol for secondary school. I gained an MA (Hons) in Classics at the University of Edinburgh and was awarded the Hardie Prize for dissertation ‘The Mythic and Tragic Visions of Park Chan-Wook’s Oldboy. Following this I studied for a Filmmaking Certificate at the London Film Academy, as well as taking several NFTS short course.
In July 2019 I graduated with an MA in Dramatic Writing from the Drama Centre at Central Saint Martins, gaining a Distinction. While at Drama Centre I wrote a full length play set in 11th century Cairo as well as proposals for a video game centred around black female characters, a TV series about a Namibian girl in Berlin during the Weimar Republic, a coming-of-age animation series set in a world inspired by Ugandan and Lebanese mythology.
I have worked on documentaries, music videos and corporate films. Most recently, I worked as lead writer and narrative designer in a variety of mediums (including radio, music video, television and digital media) for an NGO that used narrative storytelling to empower girls.
I then worked as a writer and narrative designer for an immersive mobile story-telling platform called UNRD. I am currently Senior Narrative Designer at Fusebox Games, a narrative-driven mobile game company.
I was awarded an Arts Council grant to develop work for my local borough of Hounslow to develop a play to be performed at the Hounslow Arts Centre in 2020.
