When I was 17, I decided to write a big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's King Lear. I'll get around to it eventually.
After more than fifteen years as a critic, comedian and award-winning journalist, I am finally making good on my high school yearbook promise to make movies. In 2015 I received a Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowship to work on a comedy screenplay inspired by Aristophanes' Lysistrata. In 2017 I completed a Masters of Screenwriting at VCA. I am a tutor in screenwriting at University of Melbourne.
