I’ve been performing my poetry since January 2018 at events and open mic nights

Follow me on Twitter for the latest updates on upcoming events!

Since the Coronavirus pandemic hit, I haven’t been performing as much – naturally! – but I am still sharing my poetry on Instagram, and have taken to occasionally appearing via Instagram Live to recite some of my most recent work.
