I initially moved to London to study playwriting and screenwriting and graduated with an MA from City, University of London in 2014. Below you can find a bit more information about some of my projects as a writer.
AT THE MOMENT:

Victory Allyn is dead. She died and nobody noticed. Sixteen months later, Matthew and Lorna are haunted by the unanswered question: How could a young, intelligent woman from a seemingly good home melt into the carpet?
"... what it lacks in ebullience, it makes up for in vision and the courage to go where many seasoned playwrights would fear to tread. Victory marks the first of many adventurous productions by the Nightingale Collective and Malm as a talent to watch."
Female Arts Magazine
".. the sense of helpless inevitability to the conclusion is in keeping with the piece’s powerful – and undeniably affecting – sadness. As if the mournful score has been played on the strings of the heart as well as the cello, this resonant sorrow leaves lingering in the mind well after the lights have come up."
Cast: Victory - Aspen Reiss, Matthew - Samuel Lawrence, Lorna - Jenny Wills, Frank - Arthur McBain, Cellist - Claire Petzal
Produced by The Nightingale Collective at Theatre503
Opening run: August 18th to 22nd at Theatre503, London. More photos can be found here.
