Freelance community worker utilising creative techniques to support good causes, working primarily with LGBT+, equality and human rights groups and organisations. ​

i am a firm believer in diy ethics

​​If I want something doing - I do it. When I wanted a website, I taught myself to make one. When I see injustice, I actively challenge it. When I wanted to sort my garden out I got my spade out and started digging. ​I try to apply this to as many areas of my life as possible from learning to knit to cutting my own hair (often with disastrous consequence!).​

 

It means I have learned skills, worked with some amazing people and have lots of interesting stories to tell from attending circus school to organising Sheffield's first LGBT+ Pride event.​

what does this mean to you?

​I believe in skill sharing and sustainability. If I create a website for you, I will teach you how to update and maintain it. If I run a workshop or event, I will leave you with the information / resources to run it again.​

 

Take a look around the site to see some of the things I have done and if you have a project you think I may be interested in getting involved in get in touch.
