I am currently working on my PhD in English Literature at Birkbeck, University of London.
My current academic work examines the manifestations of utopia, the radical imagination, and precarity in contemporary culture, with a particular interest in science fiction and protest literature from the UK, USA, and Ukraine.
A story about Fox, who lives in a glass tower in the city, and Witch, who lives in the edgelands beyond the ring road, for two voices and electronic/choral soundscape. Performed at the Australian National Folk Festival 2016 with Zoë Anderson and Becki Whitton.
Along with Zoë Anderson, Aaron Kirby and Fiona McLeod, I created and hosted Canberra Slamboree, a poetry slam of sorts. Canberra Slamboree goes on joyfully despite my moving to London. It is Australia's longest and (so far) only scout-themed slam poetry night.
I built a collaborative open calendar for the UK performance poetry community called Wordfeed. Use it, tell your friends, and contact me if you'd like to help me improve it!
I co-run Pilcrow Press, a small publishing house based in Canberra, Australia. We publish poetry and experimental fiction by young, new, or otherwise unknown writers.
We publish Prowlings, a tiny, print-it-yourself journal of microfiction and poetry.
Many years ago I made a webcomic with my friend Nate.
I also make zines, design websites (such as this one), translate, edit, cook, and enjoy trains a lot.
