I’m a writer and advocate of social justice and equality, writing a book about policing.

I also write opinion pieces for newspapers and magazines (The IndependentThe Guardian, The i PaperMax News) and commentate on television and radio (Sky News; ITV News, BBC), about race; sexuality, mental health, cancer and policing.

I’m a former detective of both the Greater Manchester Police and London’s Metropolitan Police, having served within counter terrorism and criminal investigation.

I hold a Master of Arts Writing for Screen & Stage from Regent’s University London, and am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I founded the initiative, Racism Ruins Lives, and am an Ambassador for the campaign, Cancer Does Not Discriminate.
