I am a writer, editor and film photographer based in Scotland. My narrative non-fiction – focusing on place, nature and identity – has been published widely in journals and online, such as Places Journal, Ernest, Elsewhere, The Clearing (Little Toller Books), The Calvert Journal, Drawing Matter and Zoomorphic. In 2017, my fiction was shortlisted for the Bath Novel Award, and the same year I graduated with Distinction from the Creative Writing MA at Bath Spa University, where I was shortlisted for the Janklow & Nesbit Prize. I have a decade of editorial and copywriting experience, working with companies such as Hodder & Stoughton, HarperCollins, Faber & Faber, Juilliard and Ericsson. For the past five years, I have worked as an editor for Cornerstones Literary Consultancy.
In my place and portrait photography, I mainly use 35mm black and white film. My eye is drawn to low sun, long shadows and sharp lines, and at the heart of my practice is the use of bright natural light and close detail to defamiliarise the world around us. My photographs have been published in Lodestars Anthology, F-Stop Magazine, Fraction Magazine and WerkHaus Zine, and exhibited in Blank Wall Gallery, Athens, and The Glasgow Gallery of Photography. My prints are available online and from AGITATE, Edinburgh.
