About me

ACTIVISM • Founder of Nature is a Human Right, the organisation making access to green space a recognised human right. • 2020 Fellow of social enterprise incubator scheme, Year Here, through which I'm developing my own venture, as well as working as a social innovation consultant. • Board Trustee of environmental charity Global Action Plan. I particularly support GAP's Wellbeing vs Consumerism work, including the #Idontbuyit campaign and Flickers of the Future original film platform (for which Richard Curtis is the patron). STRATEGY • 4 years as a creative strategist: conducting research, forecasting cultural trends and devising fresh, relevant campaigns to engage people. • I now work as a freelance creative strategy consultant for ethical brands, including Charrli Refill, Blue Elvin, The Visionaries, Force of Nature and Frocks. WRITING • Published in Refinery29, Culture Trip and Where the Leaves Fall. • Always looking for new opportunities to write about social and environmental justice issues, particularly nature deprivation.
