As a Playwright 

"I write plays because I enjoy it. From a very young age I have been writing plays. First for my siblings to perform in, then school and university friends, and finally professional actors.
I managed to get my first professional job as a director through directing my own work.
I write plays to try and better understand what's going on in the world and to 'alter peoples' idea of the kind of society they should strive for'. I write plays to extend my practise as a director, and because I enjoy hearing and seeing my words interpreted by others. 

I write for adults and children."
