Introduction

I’m a spoken word performer who has been stomping about the spoken word scene since May 2008. Initially inspired by the ethos of punk, my poems, monologues and stories have intense energy and passion, shot through with anger, sadness and humour.

I’ve performed hundreds of gigs all over the UK, including festivals such as Secret Garden Party (pilled up Guardian readers), Glastonwick (beer and cider soaked Levellers fans) and Boomtown Fair (ketamine-addled crusties), and been privileged enough to feature for some of the leading lights of UK spoken word, including Liar’s League, Apples & Snakes, Hammer & Tongue and Loud Poets.

I’ve also performed internationally in Germany, Thailand, Malaysia and all over Australia.

I’m one half of sporadic, weirdo electronic-spoken word outfit Captain of the Rant vs. Hair Explosion, who have released two EPs. Click here, to get your grubby mitts on them.

Myself, illustrator Ada Jusic and animator Isolde Godfrey recently made a spoken word animation short. You can watch it here.
