I began writing in 2014 as a way of trying to cope with, and comprehend life, and haven't stopped writing since. My work varies from discussing mental health to relationships, sexual and gender identity to political activism.
In June 2016 I performed my first solo spoken word show- 'Ok?' as part of the Southend Fringe Festival. Ok?' is a one woman spoken word show about the struggles of an overactive mind. This show provides an exceptionally honest insight about what it's like to battle with mental health issues on a daily basis, and aims to highlight for the audience how empowering 'sadness' can be. This show began as a series of poems and pieces of spoken word that I had written as a coping mechanism and to externalise some of the chaos that was in my head. It received critical acclaim and I have been asked to return to not only perform at the Southend Fringe in June 2017, but also as Program Manager.
I am currently performing on the Open Mic circuit in both Essex and London- highlights including at the Phoenix Arts Club in Soho and at Drill Hall.
