“Originally from Hertfordshire, I have lived in South Woodford with my long-term partner since 2006.
I work as a contract financial professional in the City having been educated to Masters level in Physics.
Spending quality time with my family and our two cats is important to me, and, as the parent of a six-year-old girl, matters of local education are crucial. As is making our community safe and providing a clean environment for all to live in, now and in the future.
I am a committed vegan (for animals, the environment and my health) and I moderate an online vegan community. I also enjoy walking, running, going to the gym, listening to music and cooking.”
