Date appointed: February 2013
Appointed by: Parents' election

I am a youth engagement producer, project manager, university lecturer and mentor who specialises in devising & delivering large professional-standard media projects for young people. In addition, I curate talks for young people, providing a platform for comment, analysis and debate on education, youth culture, diversity and identity in modern Britain. I am currently setting up The School of Logical Progression, a creative employability and apprenticeship programme for 18-26 year olds, designed to help them find work in the creative industries in London and to support them through their first year of work.

I chair the resource and finance committee as well as being both a parent and link governor for creativity. Previously I was a parent governor on the governing body of William Patten Primary School (2007-11) where in addition to being vice-chair, I sat on both curriculum and communications committees and was involved in recruiting parent and other local-authority governors.

I am a Fellow at The RSA and passionate about social mobility and equal opportunities for all young people both inside and outside the school setting.
