Biography / CV / Contact Me

I am an artist, writer, and harridan based in the UK. I write stuff, do stuff, and make stuff. I interrogate expanded screenplay as a site for auto-fictive practice, and the non-linear relations between trauma, memory, and language. I am an associate lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University; and a co-editor at Gordian Projects, a small press operating at the intersection of artist’s book, art writing, and archive.
