Theatre

I was a writer for Theatre In Motion: Multi-Lingual Translation and Performance, a funded project with the Italian Studies department at Warwick (Oct 2018 - Mar 2019). In a team of five, I adapted Guiseppe Catozzella's novel Non dirmi che hai paura (Don't Tell Me You're Afraid in English) for the stage, collaboratively writing the script. I also acted in the play. The script will be published in an upcoming book.

Film

In a team of four, I co-wrote and co-directed Back to the Beginning: Killing Infection with Infection, a short science film produced by LabCut Science Films. This was a three-day film workshop funded by the Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme (Jun 2019). The film will be screened at the British Science Festival at Warwick University in Sep 2019.

I assisted on The Inferno Show, a short film by the European Drama Network in association with Warwick Business School (Mar 2013). I am credited as Costume Supervisor on the film production.

I also produced some short films for the Singapore Civil Defence Force whilst working in journalism (2011).

Radio

I participated in a student radio production about stories and storytelling in music on Warwick RaW (Nov 2012).
