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

My first novel is The Waking (Wundor Editions 2017). My first collection of poetry is Sea of the Edge (Wundor Editions 2018). Both have been published in the UK and North America.

My poetry has been published in The London Magazine, Acumen, 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 with the New York Centre for Photographic Arts at Art Santa Fe 2019, at Black Box Gallery in Portland and at the Museo di Casa Giorgione in Castelfranco. My first solo exhibition will be at Hagi Art in Tokyo in January-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.
