Publishing credits include The Skinny, Bella Caledonia, The Acentos Review, The Guardian, and Gutter. He has featured in Ceremony, We Were Always Here, The Centenary Collection, and Crossing Lines: An Anthology of Immigrant Poetry. In 2020, he was awarded a Second Life grant through the Edwin Morgan Trust. His debut poetry collection, At Least This I Know, will be published in January 2022 by 404 Ink.
