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 makes us and shapes us into who we are, and what has the power to change it. Currently, I’m a member of Roundhouse Works, NSDF Lab 2023/24 and Beyond Face’s We Are Here To Write programme.

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.

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.

Outside of my writing and dramaturgy, I work as an English tutor for KS2, KS3 and GCSE students. Occasionally, I also teach A Level Law and undergraduate Criminology as I have a First Class BA in Criminal Justice and Criminology from the University of Leeds. I’ve delivered over 1,100 lessons so far and am available to take on new students from September 2023.
