I’m a writer, poet, spoken word artist, business owner and full-time cake eater. The latter is a job I take incredibly seriously and should you wish to win my heart (just as an FYI), cake is the way to do it.

Grab a cup of tea (hopefully a fat slice of cake too), put your feet up and get comfortable.

Here you’ll find the soft and achy parts of me,

and hopefully, over oceans and internet waves,

we’ll connect through shared emotion

and find relief in the things that are sometimes too hard to say out loud.
