You can listen here to the 5 minute haiku journey Crossing Points which I wrote during my time as the Irish Writers Centre Roaming Writer in Residence on the railways. Reflections, connections, nature, memories, borders, contemplations all came together as a meditative journey.


In this video recording, I read some poems from my second collection The Return of the Buffalo.



Another video recording where I read some poems from my first collection Midnight Solo.



Check out some photos of Bridging the Silence here to get a taste of this audio walk and installation shown on pedestrian bridges that tells the stories of survivors of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, political violence and transgender issues.


This is a collaborative project with Croatian multimedia and sound artist Hrvoslava Brkušić and Basque visual artist and performer Beatriz Churruca. The project mixes my poetic narration with real life testimonies, sounds and music.


These photos are from Ljubljana, Slovenia.
