Having grown up in the British rural idyll where Cumbria rubs up against Lancashire, gorging on books and music magazines and surrounded by Swaledale sheep, I shuffled off to study languages at the University Of Leeds.
From there I moved abroad to work and study in France and Italy, picking up the cinephile virus while studying film in a French university on the way. After an extended period living in Madrid at the end of my studies, I moved to London where I began a career (broadly) in content production and dissemination.
Since then I’ve worked across a variety of different platforms and media, communicating to a diverse range of (international) audiences and honing my writing skills. I also managed to squeeze in an MA in Cinema Studies at the University Of Bristol along the way.
In the past I’ve worked as a children’s campsite entertainer, a beater for grouse shoots, a pretend Press Gang officer for the Royal Navy, a guide on witch tours, a sales assistant in an Iraqi shop, a club DJ, and a nursery school teaching assistant. I am quite flexible.
Nowadays, when I’m not grafting on some content or copy, you’ll find me out on the moors chasing the sheep I left behind, or at a gig trying not stand in anyone’s way, or watching some poncey arthouse film or another. Or nursing a pale ale in a cosy pub.
Scafell is my first novel.
