You can listen online to all five episodes here:

My two episodes are Snakes on a Date and Love is a Virus. They’re pretty much what you would expect them to be from the titles. ;-)

I have written and am producing a radio sitcom about a failing dating agency in the unfair city of Glasgow. The recording is on the 30th so do come and be in the studio audience if you are comedically inclined.

Premiere of The Secret at Oxford's Ultimate Picture Palace, Feb 26

A short film I wrote about the dangers of teaching small children magic tricks is being screened for the first time on the 26th of Feb at the Ultimate Picture Palace in Oxford.

The film is directed by Constance Meath-Baker and Roland Walters, and funded by the Oxford Film Fund with the super-lovely support of the BFI, Thelma Holt, Aidan Grounds, Fran Denny and Emily Precious.

There will be a reel-load of other shorts too, and the UPP is probably the best retro cinema in England, so excitement is guaranteed!
