I have just written a piece for The Essay on BBC Radio 2, which will be broadcast on 19 September 2022 and available on BBC Sounds.

I was educated at Goldsmiths College, University of London and am a graduate of the MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia where I was awarded the Curtis Brown Scholarship.
