Welcome to my home on the web

I write and advocate for social justice and equality with a focus on race, sexuality, mental health, homelessness and housing. I began writing with a blog, followed by opinion pieces for newspapers and magazines, including the Independent, Guardian and Big Issue and appeared on television and radio for the BBC and Sky. I was awarded MBE for services to diversity through literature for my book, Forced Out, published by Granta and shortlisted for a Polari Prize about my time as a detective in the Greater Manchester Police and Metropolitan Police. I’m working on a new book, with a homelessness charity, completed the Board Trainee Programme with the Housing Diversity Network as a Next Generation Trustee, volunteer with an LGBTQ+ homelessness youth charity and am on the scrutiny panel of a housing association. I hold a Master’s in Writing from Regent’s University London, am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Housing. I’m studying for a Postgrad Certificate in Leadership and Management: Homelessness and Housing at London South Bank University sponsored by the London Housing Foundation
