I am a non-profit manager based in London, UK. I have worked across a range of fields, mostly in small NGOs and start-ups, in roles covering strategy, operations and fundraising. 

As of April 2021 I am CEO of the Fairness Foundation. Before that I was (in reverse order) interim COO at Global Witness, Director of Operations at the Tax Justice Network (and Founder and Chair of Tax Justice UK), and Director of Strategy and Development at Development Media International. I have also run a startup in Kenya and worked for the UK Government (Cabinet Office, DFID and the Department of Health). 

A short version of my CV is available here. There is more detail further down this page. I'm also on LinkedIn.
