For many years I worked in Further Education as a specialist teacher focusing on individual learning needs including dyslexia. I have facilitated creative writing groups in college and community settings working alongside authors such as Alex Wheatle, Irenosen Okojie, and Courttia Newland and the actor Adjoa Andoh, aimed at promoting health and well-being. I am currently working alongside Dr Colin King in setting up of the Race Equality and Whiteness Network. My other main interest is music. I am a guitarist and songwriter. I also run a website to commemorate, and celebrate, the music of singer/songwriter Sian Daniels.
