I was born in India and raised in Vancouver. I moved to Scotland in 1994. I have collaborated across various art forms, including stage and film. I spent a year in Orkney as the George Mackay Brown Writing Fellow, which inspired my 2010 collection Slokt by Sea (Red Squirrel Press). My pamphlet, Skirlags was shortlisted for the Callum Macdonald Award in 2010. My illustrated poem, Hrafn Floki, was purchased by the National Gallery of Modern Art, Special Books collection in 2014. I teach Creative Writing in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and will be taking part in the creative writing strand of the Major Minor Cinema project.
