"Stories stay with you. They can build worlds, atmosphere, characters, places, products and people. They help the user interpret something simply enough in order to understand it better."
I love to build an engaging story that creates an emotional journey for the reader. One that sucks them in and keeps them there so that my imaginative story-world can unfold infront of them. The drama needs to be engaging enough so that characters feel real. Sounds need to be amplified so they can be heard. Locations need to be detailed so they can be visualised and atmosphere needs to be injected so it can be absorbed by the reader.
Sometimes, if I’m lucky enough and have the right budget, I’m able to turn my own stories into movies. I’ve made some short films in my time and now looking to fund my first feature film, a Scottish Western Drama; Tell No Tales.
I’ve acquired many different skills over the years in a variety of creative jobs such as directing, producing and editing. They’re a few of the roles I’ve undertaken, other than writing, that have helped strengthen and improve my story-telling capabilities.
This site is specifically designed to flaunt my visual portfolio of writing, creativity and ideas. Some, that may have yet to see the light of day. I’m always hunting around for innovative freelance work so please feel free to drop me a message. Afterall, as Albert Einstein once said:
“Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.”
