I'm a writer and a photographer based in North London.


My first novel is The Waking (Wundor Editions 2017), published in the UK and the US. My first collection of poetry is Sea of the Edge (Wundor Editions 2018). You can find out more about my books here.


My poetry has been published in Acumen, The London Magazine, Envoi, Poetry Salzburg Review and Orbis. I won second place in The London Magazine Poetry Prize 2018. I won the Orbis Readers' Award in March 2019. I have been shortlisted for the PENfro Book Festival Open Poetry Competition and the Nottingham Open Poetry Competition.


My photography has been included in group shows in Portland, Venice and at the Museo di Casa Giorgione in Castelfranco. My first solo exhibition will be at Hagi Art in Tokyo in February 2020.


I am the creator and editor of the Wundor City Guide series, which features my writing and photography, along with the work of other artists.


I read English Literature at Christ Church College, Oxford.
