I am an agent working with writers and directors in theatre, film and television. I also handle literary material for the screen.

I joined Curtis Brown in 2002. Before that I worked at Casarotto Ramsay and was a reader at The Gate Theatre in Notting Hill. I also had a stint at Blackwells bookshop on Charing Cross Road.

I believe in offering informed and practical advice to my clients. I search out the best material for directors and encourage writers to make bold and creative choices.

I have a number of clients working in the US and enjoy good relationships with the major US agencies and management companies.

Literary material is at the heart of this agency and I am fortunate enough to work with a list of Estates that includes those of Samuel Beckett and Daphne Du Maurier as well as many contemporary prize winning writers.

Recent projects include the Bafta nominated mini series The Fall directed by Jakob Verbruggen, Cuba Productions upcoming series Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell directed by Toby Haynes, and The Interceptor an 8 part series for BBC1 written and exec produced by Tony Saint.
