He has also had two novels and one poetry collection published.

He released an L.P and single with UK based 80s avant garde / experimental band, 4,000,000 Telephones, which gained critical acclaim in the UK national press and made the playlist of BBC Radio 1’s John Peel show. Tipped by NME as most likely candidates for better things.

He has also curated and compered the spoken word stage at the Independence Music & Arts Festival in Ireland and is currently one half of comedy duo Two Corpses With Hard ons.
