About me and my vision for Brighton, Hove and District
I'm a member of GMB (Sussex Branch) and Unite the Union (Community Section), the Co-operative Party, Labour Campaign for International Development, CND and LGBT Labour. I'm a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a non-formal educator.
Having been raised in Sussex, I went to the local school and college and worked in Lewes and Peacehaven. I then studied and worked at University of Bradford followed by a short spell in Brussels and then New York.
I have had a background in co-operative businesses as a Director of one of the UK’s oldest Fair Trade cafés, Company Secretary for a housing co-operative and founder of a bulk-buying food co-operative. I've worked for East Sussex County Council’s Youth Service and ran a children’s group, the Woodcraft Folk.
