I did a joint degree in History and Education at Cambridge. I worked as a teaching assistant at Richard Pate School, Cheltenham; I have been tutoring part-time since 2008. I have been involved with various charity organisations and projects, including CARIS Islington, The Manna at St. Stephens and Housing Justice. I am an active member of the Labour Party and assisted in the 2014 local elections in Hornsey and Wood Green, running a Campaign Centre in Highgate Ward. I am a Christian and am a member of St. Stephens, Canonbury where I am a singer. I am a West of England level hockey player and an avid theatre goer.
