I'm a poet, performer, event producer, journalist and podcast maker. I've developed theatre and poetry shows at a grassroots level, involved with every aspect of the productions, and also produced a monthly spoken word podcast. I have previously worked for websites such as Den of Geek and Cultbox, writing features, reviews and interviews that covered major film festivals. I've featured regularly at nights across Glasgow and Edinburgh (such as Flint & Pitch, Sonnet Youth, and Loud Poets), with my work appearing regularly across Scottish journals. My debut collection - An Intense Young Man at an Open Mic Night - was published in 2017. My pamphlet The R-Pattz Facttz 2020 was published by Speculative Books in, unsurprisingly, 2020.
My work is mostly very silly and very sad. I'm currently developing and producing poetry shows in collaboration with Ross McCleary. Previous events include The Ambassador's Reception, a spoken word murder mystery set during a Ferrero Rocher advert. I can also tell you the cheapest way to bulk buy Ferrero Rocher, should that need ever arise. (Photo credit: Ross Hill)
