MY STORY

Behind the Words

I'm a product of what has happened to me. Happy childhood followed by a depressed teenage period capped off with a stint in a boarding school/mental hospital. After I was diagnosed with bipolar and I realised I couldn't follow my dreams of being a roboticist, I started writing.


Then came university. A double major in creative writing and performing arts, with a side of Shakespeare, greek magic, philosophy and fairy tales. But I need more. So I decided to complete a degree in film at the Australian Film Television and Radio School. I was also one of the recipients of the Westwords Varuna Fellowship in 2019 and the Westwords Emerging Writers Fellowship in 2019.


Four novels, a handful of scripts and short films later, I make what I can imagine.
