About Me

I'm a writer living in London. I'm currently one of the writers taking part in the BBC Drama Room 2018 with BBC Writersroom. 

My theatre plays include a queer adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Arcola Theatre; The ClinicQueers and The Chemsex Monologues at the King's Head Theatre; Superficial at The Glory; and The HIV Monologues at Theatre 503, all under my work with Dragonflies Theatre

Both The HIV Monologues and The Chemsex Monologues are published by Oberon Books, with The Chemsex Monologues nominated for the Polari Prize 2017The HIV Monologues has been produced in Sydney and Chicago, and Dragonflies have toured to Adelaide, Sydney, Dublin and Berlin. This year I also wrote and co-produced the short film series The Grass Is Always Grindr.

As a poet, I founded the night Spoken Word London, and my poem 'Hate' features on the 'Hate Me' track with DJ/producer KDA, available to stream now. I've worked with BBC Radio 1 and Amnesty International on poetry projects, and performed at the ICA and Latitude Festival. 

Journalistically, I'm a senior contributing editor to Attitude, and have written for Vice and Dazed. I've been named 'One to Watch' on The Independent on Sunday's Rainbow List as a playwright, and was placed on the Pride Power List published in The Observer.
