Hello and welcome to my home on the web. I’m a writer and advocate of social justice and equality; whose mixed-race, gay, Catholic and Scouse.
I work on articles for newspapers and magazines, books and scripts for film and theatre which explore race, sexuality, mental health, cancer and policing, whilst commentating on the arts, culture, politics and social issues.
I’m a former Scotland Yard special branch detective having served as an intelligence officer with London’s Metropolitan Police counter terrorism command, and prior to this I was a detective with the Greater Manchester Police criminal investigation department.
I hold a Master of Arts Writing for Screen & Stage from Regent’s University London School of Drama, Film & Media and am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
I founded the initiative Racism Ruins Lives and am an Ambassador for BME Cancer Voice, Cancer Does Not Discriminate, helping to raise awareness of cancer in all communities.
