Working in education, writing about mental health.

I currently work as a manager in a busy Sixth Form College in Hackney, and as a consultant for an Edtech start-up.

I’m passionate about widening participation, and am really interested in the transition between Further and Higher Education and the continuing role of universities as pillars of a socially mobile, meritocratic society. When I'm not busy at school I spend time writing about mental health, boxing, and running.

I read English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford and Contemporary Literature, Culture, and Theory at King’s College, University of London.
