I’m a writer and advocate of social justice and equality, writing a book about policing.
I write opinion pieces for newspapers and magazines (including The Independent; The Guardian, BlackOut UK, The i Paper, UK Black Pride, QX Magazine, Winq Magazine, Pink News and Max News) and commentate on television and radio (particularly Sky News; the BBC and ITV News), 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 criminal investigation and counter terrorism.
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.
