Born and raised in Brixton, Nathaniel’s desire to create stories was sparked by the eclectic cultural mix of bedtime tales his mother would read him. But, for a long time his path seemed to lead towards becoming a professional footballer – that is, until a career ending injury devastated his dreams.
Nathaniel found happiness again through his writing, which ultimately led to his selection for the MA Screenwriting Course at the National Film & Television School – where for the duration of the two years he was a David Lean Scholar.
Nathaniel has written episodes for Noughts & Crosses (Mammoth Screen/BBC) and Tin Star II (Kudos/Sky). His script Hound, written as part of the Channel 4 Screenwriting Course, is optioned to Balloon Ent. And Nathaniel’s script Companion, written for the BBC’s Drama Writer’s Course is with BBC Studios. Nathaniel has delivered an original full length play, First Touch, commissioned by Nottingham Playhouse, and his second radio play Walter T Flint to producer Sally Avens/BBC.
Nathaniel also has a number of original dramas in early development including, Skin Deep (STV), Hooked (Wall to Wall), The Good Barber (Kudos), Laurie Cunningham (New Pictures) and is one of the co-creators of Heist, a collaborative development with Tony Jordan/Red Planet Pictures.
Nathaniel’s credits include Baller, an original R4 Afternoon Play, monologue ‘Special Delivery’ for BBC3’s The Break II, and a short script for BBC3 series Five by Five for BBC Studios/Green Door. He was also selected for the 2017 BBC New Talent Hotlist.
