I am secretary of Greenwich & Bexley TUC, and all my adult life I have been an active socialist and trade unionist .  Particularly in UCU strikes and campaigns against education cuts most notably the closure of RNIB Redhill College, which was supported by the late Tony Benn. I am a teacher in further education

In 2010 I received the UCU Distinguished Service Award.

I helped initiate the formation of the Greenwich & Bexley TUC in 2010. Re-elected secretary every year since.
