I write and advocate for social justice and equality, focusing 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 and Guardian 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, lead the equity, diversity and inclusion team at a homelessness charity, am a charity trustee and studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership at London South Bank University sponsored by the London Housing Foundation. I hold a Master’s in Writing from Regent’s University, am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Housing
