“I have been obsessed with the world of film from a young age. I remember walking in to town on Saturdays to get an ice-cream and rent the latest movies on VCR. I am Dyslexic and it has taken me until my 30’s to develop the confidence to write films and produce them. I am now doing what I truly love doing, research, writing and sharing stories with the world.”
