About

I am the author of nine collections of poetry and a new collection, Shelf, will be published by Sagging Meniscus Press in New Jersey early next year. In 2019 I was chosen to represent Paris in the final of the Trans-Europe Expression Poetry Slam in Manchester. You can order all my books via the poetry section of this site.

I am co-creator and lead actor in the experimental film, Coldhearts: a poetical – like a musical but where poetry drives the feeling and form, the colour and chemistry of the film. I have experience acting for theatre and television too. 

I have shot, recorded and produced fifty short poetry videos, a selection of which can be seen on this website – if your appetite is whetted and you want to see all fifty of them then check out my YouTube channel.

I also write journalism, primarily on topics relating to the environment. My articles have been published by The Stanford Social Innovation Review and in the award-winning Canadian newspaper, The National Observer. You can read a few sample articles in the prose section of this site.

I have done voice over for independent films and less independent ones – Mediapro, Amazon Prime. If you are looking for a voice – British but not too British, with a medium-deep register – then listen to my voice reels and, if you like what you hear, drop me a line.

I have considerable experience as a translator too, working from French into English.

Words. That is what I do; they are what I love.
