One of the winners of the Scotland Short Play Award 2015, his short works for theatre have also been performed at the Milano Playwrighting Festival and the Samuel French OOB Festival in New York. His first full length play, Milk premiered at the Traverse Theatre as their flagship production of the Edinburgh Festival 2016.
