My pronouns are he/him. I have been working for SOAS since 2011.

I have 18 years experience in student advice and welfare support - specialising in student immigration and finance advice. I previously worked for the University of the Arts.

I have a BA (Hons) degree in Film Studies from London Metropolitan. I hold professional memberships with our national training bodies, UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), the Association of International Student Advisers (AISA), and the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA)

Outside of SOAS, I am a parent of two and also enjoy cooking, making electronic music and cycling.
