Welcome to the place where I wibble about what I’ve done and what I’d subsequently like to do. I shout at clouds, with statistically proven attempts of success. If you don’t believe me, read the latest Work Biography :D

Having worked reasonably hard for the best part of four years, we finally found a publisher in 2022, and now we have a DEBUT PAMPHLET. A follow-up is planned for 2023 and yes, I am already writing it. There’s also a CHAPBOOK due (from another publisher in April of 2023) More news when it appears.
Here’s my digital launch. Apparently I was quite good.
If you’d like to know how we got here?
It began with some poems about home.

This is part of the Places of Poetry initiative.
I was asked to sign a rights form for one of my poems, for possible inclusion in BBC1’s ‘Countryfile’ but I never made the final report. However, one poem from the selection (A13, Trunk Road of the Free) was chosen to be included in the official published ‘Places of Poetry’ anthology, which was published by OneWorld Publications on October 1st, 2020.
Oh yeah, and I was interviewed for the Telegraph’s Lifestyle section which appeared in print on September 27th, 2020. RAR.
I was a winner of the Members’ Poems competition in the Winter 2018 issue of Poetry News, official publication of the Poetry Society. The theme of the contest was ‘The Abstract Space’, inspired by the poetry of W.S. Graham and judged by Rachael Boast. The poem that won, The Beast in Cyberspace, can be read on the Poetry Society’s website. I performed this piece live at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden on February 8th, 2019.
Here’s a video of me performing at the NeurodiVERSE event in 2022. I am near the end.
In October I started a digital chapbook project over on YouTube. I also began recording daily videos for TikTok.
REAL LIFE GUBBINS:
If you wish, you can follow me on Strava. I completed 310km of running at the end of March 2021 and completed the Vitality 10,000 for the second time at the end of May 2022. I have done a LOT of cycling and weightlifting since then… and now I’m planning to try and record exercise for every day in 2023. There will be poetry to accompany it.
Twitter’s meltdown is well documented, and if you want to follow me now?
