"I became interested in writing when I was in high school and had to write fiction pieces for assignments."
"You’ve got to really turn your game face on and step out of whatever you’ve got going on in your mind, or at home."

"Ever since I can remember, I have loved being in my head creating stories."
"In 2012, I officially became an Australian citizen and that whole ceremonious process is one of the most memorable and coolest things I've experienced."
"I started writing in earnest after I moved to Australia, as a way to make sense of my experiences here."
"I started writing poetry as a way of working through the experience of being a queer, mixed race teenage boy in Mandurah."

"When I was young, my grandfather used to tell us stories about a period of time when he acted as an unofficial exorcist for his town, and I've been fascinated with storytelling ever since."
