I’m a writer from Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire currently living in London. Having graduated with postgraduate degrees in both Film Theory & History (Trinity College Dublin) and Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP Kingston) I am now in the process of undertaking more in-depth academic research whilst continuing to write my own essays, poetry, and fiction. I previously worked in the publishing industry for six years in editorial, digital, and marketing roles.
My principal concerns are: European literature and poetry of the twentieth century, the failure of language and the act of writing, fragmentation and form, Marx and Marxist philosophy, and the relationship between communist theory and cinema.
Outside of the academic world my essays, reviews, interviews, fiction, and poetry have been featured in a wide range of print and online media including: Los Angeles Review of Books, Aeon, Mute Magazine, the Rumpus, Irish Post, Music & Literature, Dublin Review of Books, Litro, Entropy, Quietus, Berfrois, Gorse, 3AM Magazine, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, and Black Sun Lit.
I was the founder of the Oubliette, a journal of art and writing exploring forgotten places, and am formerly an editor at Ready Steady Book.
