I’m a Campaigns Officer at Shelter, having joined in early 2012. I’m most interested in digital campaigning and the ways this can be used to change both public and political perceptions.

I’m the Stakeholder Relations Assistant at Shelter, I joined the Public Affairs team in July 2012.

I am a Policy Officer at Shelter and spend a lot of time thinking about the future of private renting and the changing demographics of the sector. When I’m not thinking about housing I’ll likely be cycling around London, in the kitchen cooking up some kind of feast, or writing about it on my food blog.
