About

This blog was set up as a means of reducing my levels of boredom, and as a place to, quite simply, share my opinions and thoughts. Hopefully you enjoy browsing. As for me, I was born back in 1997 and have been a Londoner most of my life (with a small excursion to Bath for uni). Here’s a few of the things I do/have done with my life…


Consultant

Most of my working career has been spent in Management Consulting in the realm of Technology. I’ve supported the delivery of several large transformation projects with a focus on delivery and programme management. Some of my key achievements include establishing and overseeing governance for a portfolio of projects worth £30m, managing resourcing and finance for an account of over 100 staff across 3 clients, and delivering the communications strategy for my department. I’m also a Certified Scrum Master.

I have few (if any) pictures of me at work, so here’s an image of me in a suit post-lockdown

Speaking at TfL’s annual Youth Participation Day

Pannelist

I’m a member of the Transport for London Youth Panel and served as its Chair for over half a decade, where I was responsible for shaping the panel’s agenda and ensuring that young people’s voices are heard. We work hard to represent young Londoners’ views, formally respond to consultations, hold the Mayor and TfL to account, and engage young people with the transport industry. Some of our recent work has included advocating for segregated cycle routes, supporting the implementation of ‘Vision Zero’, providing feedback on engineering career routes, and consulting on the Streetscape schemes.

In case anyone reading this does happen to be a Londoner who’s 18-25, then we would love to hear from you: youthpanel@tfl.gov.uk


Quizmaster

Whilst at Bath, I was also lucky enough to take up the position of Resident Quizmaster, which to date remains one of the most enjoyable roles I’ve ever had. Having run the weekly Pub Quiz more times than I can count over a period of four years, my hosting skills were once again called on during the Covid lockdowns to entertain family, friends, and collleagues over Zoom.

Recieving my Student Trainer Certificate

Student

I have built this website myself using standard WordPress tools and templates, hosted on a domain that I own via another registry provider. I’m trying to improve my coding skills, so when adding content, I try to write and format as much as I can using HTML and CSS rather than Visual editors.
