Work history

About me

I have been volunteering for many years and get a great sense of achievement in helping the local community.  Since the start of 2023 I have been involved with Deen City Farm and Brent Food Bank and have gone on to become the Chair of trustees at both organisations. I have been able to use my considerable operational and leadership experience in senior IT management roles at both charities.  In both cases I have been instrumental in helping the teams at both charities grow and develop their operations and become a key part of the local community.

What am I looking for

I am always interested in governorship and trustee roles and would particularly like to become involved in roles working with schools. I have had a track record as a youth rugby coach and would look to build on that as well as other experience as a Trustee.
