Back in 2020, during the first UK Covid lockdown, a lot of us were having trouble sleeping.

I wrote this lullaby poem for my wife, as she finds me reading to her soporific.

I thought it might help others sleep, too, so it's being featured on BBC Upload after 6pm on the 12th October.

You can download it here, or have a listen, below!

About Me

Predominantly working in East Anglia and London, I am co-founder of QuirkHouse Theatre Company, and an actor, voice actor, director, singer, writer, and poet for hire. 

Like a gunslinger but less dangerous.


Both of my parents were drama and English teachers, who inspired in me a love of both language and performing - many aspects of which I have been involved with all my life. A classically-trained singer and long-term fan of grass-roots and regional theatre, I look for interesting, thought-provoking and philosophical pieces which pose more questions than they answer.
