His second book The Architecture of Chance (Wurm Press, 2015) was selected as a poetry book of the year by RTÉ Arena and 3:AM Magazine. He is co-curator of Phonica, a multidisciplinary series of events in Dublin, and the poetry editor of gorse. In his current practice he employs conceptual and appropriative processes as an investigation of the surge in digital communication and public writing.

His current work-in-progress explores anonymous and pseudonymous writing on the internet.
