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.

In April 2019 my debut pamphlet The Living Museum was published by Selcouth Station Press. For me the book is an autobiographical museum tour with exhibits set in three places, London, The Fenlands, and Sweden.  There are poems about love and loss, hope and renewal and dark moments of comedy. We meet Kenneth Williams, Princess Di, and an Elephant who is a piece of ornamental topiary. The book ends with an extended sequence of poems set in Stockholm about a relationship which started at the real living museum, the open air museum Skansen. A place where people dress in historical costumes and educate visitors about Swedish cultural history. 

I was very honoured to be a speaker at the sixth annual Boring Conferencea 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.

In May 2019 I decided to set up my own small press for anthologies called House of Eddus. I hope to move into pamphlet publishing in the future. I am always looking for submissions, details are here.

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.
