I create work that champions unheard voices, transforms inner worlds and changes perceptions.


As a writer and performer, I love to bring stories to life in both literature and performance. My passion lies in crafting engaging and thought-provoking fiction and poetry that readers can relate to. As a stand-up comedian, I use comedy to connect with audiences and share my experiences on a personal level. My workshops are designed to empower others and bring out their creativity. If you’re looking to add some fun and creativity to your life, let’s connect and bring your stories to life together.

Longlisted in Bridport poetry and short story prizes, Writers & Artists short story prize and CLiPPa  award. Cultural Award from Sutton London Borough. One to Watch Funny Women. Finalist Sitcom Trials. As heard on BBC Radio and podcast series Stand By Your Nan
