I was born in Dover in 1978 and grew up in Kent and South Shields. My pamphlet Instead of Stars was published by tall-lighthouse in 2009. I’m poet-in-residence for ethical lingerie brand Holloway Smith Noir. I co-run The Shuffle, a monthly poetry reading series at London’s Poetry Café andam co-editor of The Shuffle anthology series. I live in London, working as a civil servant. You can find my poems, along with some photography and clutter on my tumblr Leopard-skin Pill-box Hat.
