Filmmaker & Writer
For a long time I’ve been keeping warm, walking up mountains, and trying to figure this life thing out.
I write novels, the odd poem, short stories, articles, and essays. I’m currently a Mellon Foundation postdoctoral fellow in Creative Writing at Rhodes University in Makhanda-Grahamstown, South Africa.
I’m fond of caramelised onions, thinking about the world, and belly-laughs.
As a seasoned television professional, I conceptualise, research, direct, edit, produce, and script.
