I’m a communications consultant, editor and strategist based in London, UK.
I help experts communicate in a clear, concise and consistent way.
I’m lead consultant at Cast from Clay, and I have over decade’s experience in and around public policy.
I have a MA in Social and Political Thought from the University of Sussex, and a BA from the University of Leeds. I grew up in Mussoorie, a hill station in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas.
I helped persuade the government to rethink Universal Credit
I led digital communications at Citizens Advice from 2017-2018. I was part of a campaign team which secured £1.5 billion additional funding to mitigate the negative effects of Universal Credit in the 2017 Autumn Budget.
I taught myself to shoot and edit video
I managed the press office at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, the UK’s leading think-tank, from 2018-20. There, I increased the IFS’ Twitter followers by 43%.
A significant part of this was introducing short, topical video. To do this, I taught myself how to shoot using a Canon EOS 5DMkIV, and how to edit using the Adobe Suite.
I interviewed Yanis Varoufakis
In 2015-16, I designed and delivered a year-round content strategy for a £2M conference series on private equity. In Amsterdam, I interviewed former Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis.
