Fives logo – a stylised number five

with Erica Wright

Something that makes you smile

Interspecies friendship.

A confession

I was named after a soap opera character.

The last thing you wrote

A poem inspired by an early star atlas.

Your favourite city

New York City.

What you’d place in a time capsule

A travel sewing kit and a slew of buttons.
