I was born in Leicester and grew up in Bath. I studied typography at Reading University and went to art school in London.
I’ve made a living as an abstract painter and photographer, as a cycle courier and bass player in an African punk jazz band, and I now work as a graphic designer for green-related NGOs.
I moved to Berlin in 2013, where I have permanent residence. I've exhibited my paintings and photographs in the UK and Germany.
The photographs in A Death Foretold are from Germany,
France, and Greece, while those in The Past Is A Foreign Country, A Fragile Hold, and A Fairy Tale of Berlin were taken in and around Berlin.
The Melancholy Of Objects was shot in Southwark in south-east London.
A Death Foretold was published by Silverhill Press in 2019. It's available here.
