I was born in Uckfield, East Sussex, in 1990. I studied English at Cambridge University from 2008-2011, specialising in modernist and beat literature.

Since graduating I’ve worked in communications, PR and marketing for agencies, companies and government departments. I currently live in Newcastle Upon Tyne with my fiancée and two cats.

I have had many poems, short stories, articles and interviews published, and self-published my debut novel, Banes Of Boys And Girls, in 2013. I participated on the first NAWE Young Writers’ Hub mentorship scheme, led by Wes Brown, during which I co-edited the ‘Revolution’ issue of Myths of the Near Future magazine. I’m currently writing my second novel.
