BA [Hons] Film + Television Production

I am an enthusiastic screenwriter and film editor, with additional experience in producing, directing, and videography. My communication and organisation skills have been honed by my practice as a piano teacher and lifeguard, and my involvement in the TV industry has made me calm under pressure. Fantastic Mr Fox has remained my favourite film over the last ten years.

The Eibhlín Tradition - Feature Script

This first feature film attempt follows young Irish mother Eibhlín through a fictional 1700s Ireland. After her grandmother's death, Eibhlín travels with her daughter EJ to find her mother, who deserted her. Through this journey, she uncovers a tradition of abandonment in her family going back generations. Faced with this information, it is hard to ignore the similarities between her journey and that of her mother all those years ago.

Being Charlie Kaufman: Navigating Originality in Hollywood

This thesis explores the early work of Charlie Kaufman, his relationship with Hollywood and the filmic devices he uses to deliver unconventional narratives to mainstream audiences. Through the analysis of Adaptation (2002), Being John Malkovich (1999), and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), it offer insight into how the human consciousness is reflected in film, and how portraying this successfully can contribute immensely to each movie’s success.
