I am a British-Algerian (Kabyle) writer and photographer from Manchester, England. I’m interested in mixed heritage, sex, and intergenerational trauma, and how we can use mixed- media to narrate these experiences. I’m currently undertaking a PhD at Falmouth University / University Arts London.

I move between Manchester, London and Cornwall. I co- founded SOBER. Magazine with my friend Rupert Phillips in 2018, and acted as Poetry Editor for REALITY BEACH between 2016 - 2019. I also sporadically run litbitch where I review literature.
