In July 2016 his performance piece PLANES,  in collaboration with the poet and composer Timothy Thornton, was developed at Battersea Arts Centre with a grant awarded by Arts Council England. The piece received critical acclaim ('totally sublime on sex, grief and ghosts', 'stripped-back, dark and reassuringly human') when it opened the Yard Theatre's NOW 17 festival of new performance.

In 2017 he formed the not-for-profit Pilot Press, an independent publisher of art and writing to shed new light on contemporary queer lives. His debut publication, Not here: a queer anthology of loneliness, sold over 700 copies worldwide with a second anthology planned for 2018.
