My journey to enlightenment was neither predicted nor original. Growing up watching the films of Francois Truffaut did not entice me into a life of bohemian carelessness. I still think “The Truman Show” is terrifying, not inspiring – Note: I still haven’t seen Citizen Kane.
Following a few years working in the creative industry in Europe and New York, I settled in London to study screenwriting and filmmaking. I worked as a supporting artist. It gave me the idea for my first feature script that I later tested as a short film, “Ciao Bella”. The short film was selected at international festivals and screened twice in London.
I found set design crucial to making compelling stories and characters come to life. I developed the art direction for several short films, features and music videos before focusing on writing.
I enjoy creating unusual environments, often using surrealist or historical imagery. I am a big fan of the 1960’s French & Italian New Waves and Old Hollywood “Film Noir”.
I am currently building a body of work including scripts, short stories and nonfiction articles with a particular interest in mental health and gender dynamics.
