Both within and outside of my day job, I write fairly regularly. Here's a selection of some of the pieces I'm most proud of, which best represent my written style, approach to politics and view of the World.
Here's a brief summary of my employment and campaigning CV.
My day job is Digital & Communications Officer at Labour's sister Party, the Co-operative Party. In my role I oversee the Party's digital and media activity, promoting the work of our team of 25 Labour & Co-operative MPs, and our policies and campaigns on housing, energy and transport.
Following a pre-university Interrail trip to Syria and Ukraine in 2008, I studied History and Politics at Oxford University.
Following University, I worked on Ed Miliband’s campaign for the Labour leadership before spending two and a half years in digital PR for campaigns and charities including the disability charity Scope and on the Olympic legacy.
My political heros are FDR, Ernie Bevin, and George Orwell, I was born in Plymouth, spent time near a space centre in Mississippi, grew up in Fareham, Hampshire and occasionally dabble in the kitchen - I'm currently working to perfect my ribs, brisket and pulled pork recipes.
