Male human. Humorist, spoken word performer and writer of creative non-fiction. Answers to the name of Adam and also any noise that sounds like someone saying Adam. Over time I’ve discovered that a lot of things sound like someone saying Adam.
I am the Managing Editor of The Real Story, an online publisher and reading series, working to raise the profile of and nurture emerging creative non-fiction talent in the UK. My writing can be found at Squawk Back, The Real Story, BBC Online, This Is Not TV, Prestwich & Whitefield Local, The Drabble, National Flash Fiction Day and in the short story collection Flash Nonfiction Funny, published by Woodhall Press.

I regularly perform at Manchester’s many live literature nights and have appeared at events across the north including Sheffield Doc/Fest, Stories at The Storey, the Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival, The University of Salford’s Festival of Research and the Manchester Literature Festival.
