About me

I'm Bene. I'm a writer and creative marketer. The former by nature. The latter by accident. But I love both and thrive on excelling in every project I undertake. I write scripts for TV, feature scripts, shorts scripts, as well as plays. I come from a theatre performer background and have spent the last few years honing my craft as a writer. This similarly led me down the marketing path, writing snappy, engaging copy and creating dynamic content for a variety of brands and companies in the arts sector. I'm very lucky to be surrounded by a network of talented young creatives on the same journey to create diverse characters and tell complex stories from our rich histories that have yet to be told. If you're a fellow writer, director, producer, creative artist, company or brand, I welcome you to get in touch. Collaboration is where the magic happens. I also write blogs - of the punchy, snarky, amusing variety with a slice of social commentary. You can see evidence of these pieces on my blog site below.
