Before commencing the Advanced Diploma of Professional Screenwriting at RMIT, I studied Professional Writing and Editing at Federation University. This was where my passion for screenwriting was first ignited. I enjoy writing long-form stories as well as shorter fiction, and I have had two short stories published so far.
