Hello

Welcome to my home on the web. I’m a writer and advocate of social justice and equality. I’m currently working on a book, screenplay and stage play.

I write opinion pieces for newspapers and magazines notably The IndependentThe Guardian and Max News and commentate on television and radio with Sky News; ITV News and the 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 the counter terrorism command and criminal investigation department. 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.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
