I’m a Glasgow-based writer, podcaster, filmmaker and poet. I work in the trade union movement. I am assistant editor at Conter and host of Contercast, a podcast covering Scottish politics and culture. More recently, I write and produce short poetry films, inspired by dreams, film-noir, addiction, Scotland’s dark and beautiful industrial past and the extremes of femininity and masculine identity. I make music as batcaves, mostly covers of some half-remembered lullabies and my own wee songs about alcoholism, love, loss and secrets. I am currently a student on the University of Glasgow MLitt Creative Writing Programme.
I wrote a weekly opinion column for the National from 2015-2018 and have written one off-comment pieces for several newspapers.
