After many years of frustratingly watching Question Time, getting annoyed at politicians inability to give a straight answer, and being an on/off inactive member of the Liberal Democrats, I decided in 2007 to get involved in politics properly and have since been a Parliamentary Candidate for Bromsgrove in the 2010 General Election, and Tooting in 2015 and as well as standing in local elections. I am currently an activist for Merton Liberal Democrats involved in all aspects of campaigning.
I’ve lived in London since graduating from the University of Bath. As part of my Economics degree I spent a year working as an Assistant Economist at the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit. I’ve worked in Commercial teams for BT and LTSB, and as a Marketing and Strategy Consultant at a Boutique consulting firm. Currently I work for Informa Business Intelligence as Head of Pricing.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling, playing cricket, football and tennis, watching sport, fundraising for charity, cooking for friends, travelling and events like murder mysteries or themed fancy dress parties. In the past I have had an allotment, as I like to live by my values, sadly work and politics has meant I can no longer offer endless supplies of fruit and veg to my friends.
