I’m a playwright, dramaturg, photographer and facilitator of mixed Irish, English and Sri Lankan descent working in Devon and London. I’m drawn to stories that balance humour and darkness, and enjoy using metaphor and absurdism in my own work to provoke and entertain. At the centre point of my curiosity as a writer are the questions of what shapes us into who we are, and what has the power to change it. Currently, I’m a member of Roundhouse Works and Beyond Face’s We Are Here To Write programme, and have just been selected as one of Paines Plough’s Mentored Writers.

Dramaturgy and script reading

Alongside my own writing, I regularly support fellow writers in developing their scripts. As a script reader and dramaturg, my focus is on providing kind and constructive feedback through asking questions about a piece and the writer’s goals, sharing thoughts and observations, and coming up with ideas collaboratively.

If you’re looking for script feedback or more long term support with your play, I’d be happy to help! Click the link below to find out more.

Creative facilitation

I facilitate writing workshops, both for young people and for adults. Recent workshops have included Developing your playwriting through structure with my collective Rebellious Head, at Theatre Deli as part of Deli Meets. I was also the Assistant Facilitator on the Roundhouse’s Creative Writing for Spoken Word and Theatre half-term project for 11 to 14 year olds.

Photography

As a photographer I have over 5 years’ experience shooting gigs in Leeds and the surrounding areas, and more recently in London. I’ve photographed bands and artists such as ELIZA, Jade Bird, Yonaka, Calva Louise, Big Joanie, Sunflower Bean, and Sophie and the Giants.
