I grew up in Stroud, Gloucestershire. At the conclusion of my formal education, I moved to London, where I studied Creative Writing and English, graduating in 2011. Between that time and more recently I have been in and out of the country with itchy feet, hopping from one adventure to the next for 6-12 months at a time. These adventures have found me doing all sorts: working, volunteering, meeting numerous locals and visiting countless amazing places, in Greece, Italy, USA and Australia. The travel bug never quite left me and instead lays dormant somewhere in the back of my mind with the abundance of priceless memories. But for now at least, I am settled in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, working as a Digital Content Executive at kate & tom’s when not writing, taking photos or pursuing other creative ends.
My poetry has been published in the following magazines/ezines: Scintilla, Love is the Law Magazine, The Cadaverine, South Bank Poetry, Reflections, a1, Great Works, IS&T and Rockland.
My debut poetry pamphlet What Remains is now available here both digitally and as a paperback.
More of my photography can be found at sees, shoots & leaves.
