I am to be found always reading (novels, zines, theses) and always writing (free writing, journalistic, poetic, and stand-up comedy). Inspiration is drawn from popular culture, personal experience, and music.

I am very concerned with the representation of minority groups in mainstream media. Whenever I have to fill out a form, I tick the, 'female', ‘Black British’ and ‘African/Caribbean’ boxes.
