My grand passion is freedom of expression and it is this that drives my diverse love of the arts and media. My writing has appeared in Vogue, Esquire, The Independent, BLOOM, The Huffington Post and Disability Arts Online, among many others. In 2011 I debuted as a scriptwriter and director with CODA, a TV drama short produced by Neath Films in association with the BSLBT that was broadcast on The Community Channel and Film4.
I also blog at The Mostyn-Thomas Journal about life as a deaf parent bringing up a child with multiple disabilities, and how that impacts on my own perspective of disability in general. This has enabled me to to explore ways of writing creatively and imaginatively, conscious that I am bringing my insights to an audience who may not share my understanding of diversity.
Having grown up deaf nearly all my life, communication plays an integral part in everything I do. I am particularly enthusiastic about contemporary art theory and ideology, arts criticism, film, creative writing, fashion and art collaborations, and disability/deaf arts.
