I write inspirational, candid and informative first-hand experiences on mental health, recovery, transgender topics and sexuality. I have been published in Transaction Magazine, Narratively and Anaphase Magazine.

I have worked with the Open University in their recent media campaign to inspire new students to enroll. I am featured in their Open Diaries series, which is being shown across various social media platforms. I am also featured in their #whatsstoppingyou campaign in a series of Channel 4 adverts.

I have spoken in schools on the topic of LGBT issues and at awareness events such as LGBT History month, on my experience of being transgender. I have also spoken at workplace conferences on topics of addiction. I presented a talk on transgender inclusion in recovery spaces for The Lifeline Project. Most recently, I took part in a number of radio interviews as an Open University student ambassador for mental health awareness day, on the topic of mental health and flexibility.
