About me

During a peripatetic childhood, I attended school in Belfast, New York and Brussels. I then obtained a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (University of York, 1998); a Post Graduate Diploma in Law (Manchester Metropolitan University, 2001); and an MA in History (Goldsmiths University of London, 2013). My working life has included employment in the criminal department of a law firm, self-employment as a bicycle courier, research for documentary filmmakers and community work in the voluntary sector.
