I am an artist investigating writing and speaking in/as performance. Primarily making performance art and actions, my work explores expanded concepts of writing, including durational writing and sound poetry. My work also extends into online projects that consider the event and performance of electronic poetry.

I have performed and exhibited nationally and internationally most recently presenting work at Experimentica, Chapter Arts, Cardiff; Shady Dealings with Language, Matts Gallery, London; The Other Room, Manchester; E-Poetry Festival, London; Performance Space, London; & Catalyst Arts, Belfast. My work has also been presented at the National Review of Live Art (2007) & Spill Festival of Performance (2009).

Alongside artist Victoria Gray I am co-director of Oui Performance an artist-led organisation dedicated to research and presentation of performance art both in the UK and internationally. I am currently PhD candidate at University of Salford, Manchester and Senior Lecturer in Performance at York St John University.
