Education

MA Screenwriting

MET Film School, London | 2016

Graduated with Merit. 

 

Throughout the course I worked alongside charities to create short films and received tutorials from Oscar-winning writer & director Steve Box, and 'The Pitch' author Eileen Quinn. I also had scripts that I had written filmed at Ealing Studios. 

BA Humanities (Honours) With Philosophy & Religious Studies

The Open University, Milton Keynes | 2013

Graduated with Upper Second Class Honours. 

 

Through Philosophy I studied the history of Western thought through the minds of scholars such as Plato, Kant, Hume and Descartes. Here I specialised in the Philosophy of Mind, Moral Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion and Political Philosophy and ended with a thesis on qualia of the human condition.  

 

Through Religious Studies I first gained a knowledge of all the major world religions and then specialised in Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. Subjects included the role of woman in religions, conflict in religion – particularly between that of Christianity and Islam – and examining the rise of secularity in Great Britain.
