My poems emerged from a desire to get back on stage and perform in front of a live audience. I’ve performed at festivals and live events including Electric Picnic, Fingal Poetry Festival and the International Cuirt Festival. I was a finalist in the All Ireland Poetry Slam 2019 and The Moth Story Grand Slam in 2018.

I’m currently working on my first collection of written poetry. Some of my favourite poets and style of collections I’m going for are Hollie McNish, Rumi Kafur and Kae Tempest.
