I was born into a proudly working class family, and have been making a living as a screenwriter for over 20 years.
Prior to that, I was a video games journalist (I still love games), and prior to that I was a graphic designer (I still love graphic design).
I've crowd-funded a number of quirky YouTube series, which tends to be my main hobby, and I host a weekly music podcast with my wife.
My creative superpower is ADHD, just don't expect a tidy house if you ever come to visit.
The thing that keeps me busiest is family. My wife and I have six kids between us, which is probably too many, and as the dad of a transgender son, I'm invested in issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.
I love all great storytelling, but you can blame Star Wars, Disney and Doctor Who for making me want to be a writer.
When I do have time, I enjoy making music, but I suspect I'm not very good at it.
