About

I’m a charity trustee, an LGBT+ Rights activist, a School Governor, a former journalist, a Councillor, a campaigner and and an activist.

I graduated in Broadcast Journalism from Nottingham Trent University in 2002.

From 2004 to 2009 I was a Broadcast Journalist with a group of commercial radio stations in the Midlands; I read the news, reported on stories and interviewed a number of high profile individuals including David Cameron and Gordon Brown.

From 2011 to 2015 I was a Borough and Parish Councillor for Barwell in Leicestershire, representing the Liberal Democrats. In May 2019 I was returned as a Parish Councillor and Chair the Planning/Highways and Events Committees on Barwell Parish Council.

Since 2010 I’ve been a centre coordinator at a small charity in Barwell, Leicestershire.

From 2014 to earlier this year I was a Trustee of the Leicester LGBT Centre in Leicester, and was its Chair from 2017 to 2020.

I currently Chair the Leicestershire Police/Fire Service LGBT+ Independent Advisory Group (IAG) Barwell Carnival Association, the Heath Lane Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG) and the Hinckley and Bosworth Fairtrade Forum.

I’m a Trustee of ‘Poors Platt,’ a charity in Barwell.

I represent the Heath Lane Surgery PPG on the Locality PPG and the Network PPG and the Locality PPG on the Hinckley and Bosworth Health and Wellbeing Partnership; the IAG on the Leicestershire Fire and Police Advisory Group on Equality; and am also a member of the Leicestershire Equalities Challenge Group.

I’m a regular on BBC Radio Leicester and Fosse 107.
