To contact me, email: editor@limpingchicken.com

I am an award-winning filmmaker, writing and directing dramas, comedies and documentaries with a difference – they’re made in sign language for a Deaf audience.

My most recent programme is the comedy sketch show Deaf Funny. Find out all about it and my other short films and TV programmes here.

I am also a journalist, writing for publications such as the Guardian and BBC Online, and editing The Limping Chicken, my own news and opinion website.

Much of my work focuses on Deaf culture – drawing on my experiences as a Deaf person who grew up in a Deaf family, while also being part of the mainstream world.

I’ve appeared in the media discussing Deaf issues on  BBC Breakfast News, BBC World Service, BBC Trending,   Watchdog, BBC London, on the BBC Ouch podcast, the Abnormally Funny People Podcast, and on Radio 4.
