I grew up in the US and lived in Paris for seven years before moving to London in 2005.
My first poetry chapbook, Self-portrait as a diviner, failing, won the Paper Swans Poetry Pamphlet Prize and was published in 2018. Poems have appeared in journals on both sides of the Atlantic, including The Rialto, B O D Y, Poetry Birmingham Literary Journal, Popshot and The Pedestal. In early 2021, new work will be forthcoming in Broken Sleep's Crossing Lines anthology and in Too Young, Too Loud, Too Different.
When I’m not writing poetry, I’m working on interpretation projects for museums and cultural sites worldwide. I also write fiction.
