About Me

I am a poet from rural Hertfordshire who now lives in North London. I have a Masters in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths where I specialised in Poetry. My poems tend to be about Queer Love, Masculinity, London, and Scandinavia.

My work has been featured in the magazines Brittle StarIotaRAUM, Porridge, and Under the Radar. Several of my poems were published in the Goldfish 2: An Anthology of Writing from Goldsmiths.

I was very honoured to be a speaker at the sixth annual Boring Conference. A day-long fiesta of impossibly dull subjects that, on closer inspection, reveal themselves to be fascinating, I was proud to present a talk on Paper Bags from Independent Bookshops, a version of which you can read here.

I was a poet-in-residence in a London garden as part of the Re-Mixed Borders scheme run by The Poetry School and London Parks and Gardens TrustHere is my write up of the experience.

I can be found on Twitter here, where I mainly communicate in drag queen gifs and emoji. When not involved in poetry, I am usually doing cross stitch or playing Nintendo games.
