BiographyI have worked at Kingston for 10 years, and before that completed a PhD at Birkbeck College, University of London. I was born and grew up in London, and my work is heavily informed by my personal experiences of the city.
In my spare time you'll find me experimenting in the kitchen, reading a book by the sea, writing fiction while listening to Brahms, at the theatre or the ballet, or playing piano for my cat.
