I’ve been a spoken word artist for over four years, and I love it!

In addition to writing and performing my sell-out solo show #GIRLHOOD at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe (touring Spring/Summer 2020), I have headlined all over Scotland and beyond. I’ve supported George The Poet, Toria Garbutt, Mike Garry and recently supported Dr John Cooper Clarke on his The Luckiest Man Alive tour (2019).

My poetry has featured at or on: Edinburgh Fringe, BBC6 Music Festival, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC The Social, Loop, STV’s The Late Show, BBC Scotland’s River City, Neu! Reekie!, Traverse Theatre, Inn Deep, The Arches, Loud Poets, Rally & Broad, Borders Book Festival, Chelping (Leeds), Siren Cinematics, LUX, Material, Wire, Zero Waste Scotland, Bloody Big Brunch, Nordoff Robbins and Berlin Spoken Word.

I’m also the co-founder of  one of Scotland’s most prominent monthly spoken word nights Sonnet Youth.

I write bespoke poems for special occasions too, and I’m currently open for commissions.
