He received a Grand Prize at the Rhode Island International Film Festival for Best Screenplay. In 2018, he wrote, produced and acted in REVELATIONS at the New York Winterfest, a play exploring the cover-up of sexual abuse in the Jehovah's Witnesses.
He has since written and produced SHORT SELL, a play about the pharmaceutical industry, and CARL DUNCAN 2020, a play that explores the unravelling of a presidential candidate in the lead up to his campaign.

Beyond all things artsy, he continues to ply his trade in his other true passion - cricket - in the hopes that one day the England Cricket Team's latest rollicking might give him a fighting chance for stardom (one can hope, right?)
