about

I just want to find stories, create them, share them.

 

I've been supported by Spread The Word with a London Writers Award in 2019-20.

 

My short stories have been published by Wasafiri, Cipher Press, Smoke magazine and Ways of Falling. I was shortlisted for a Creative Futures Writers' Award in 2019, and won the StorySLAM Live competition in 2012. 
 

One major theme of my work is that there is always moral sex and immoral sex, acceptable bodies and rejected ones.

 

My short films have been selected for twelve festivals. My play Stigma, with Luis Amália, has been programmed in theatres in Madrid and London.

 

I am the literature programmer for Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Fest in east London. I am one of the three producers behind The Log Books, a podcast about LGBTQ+ history named Best New Podcast at the British Podcast Awards 2020. 

 

I have worked as a journalist and social media editor, most recently at The Economist. I left that job in 2019 to build my creative practice.
