I currently manage community projects for a UK animal welfare charity in the North of England. Through this, I identify localised barriers to behaviour and use Human Behaviour Change models to design innovative interventions to overcome a range of behaviours. I also have experience of developing long lasting partnerships with individuals and groups in marginalised communities, most recently with BAME communities. I also collect and analyse qualitative and quantitative data through surveys, focus groups, recorded case studies, WhatsApp and other means. I also deliver presentations and workshops at conferences in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.
In 2018, I was made an Advisory Committee Member for the Whale Sanctuary Project, where I am developing education programmes for young people and adults.
I also worked for several years in education, where I taught in a range of age groups and managed a department of classroom teachers, support staff and parent volunteers as well as various subject departments. During that time, I volunteered for several wildlife conservation charities, developing educational programmes for a global audience while launching his own education conservation program called So What? in the North of England.
In 2013, I self-published the fictional book A Father’s Pride for young people with the aim of raising awareness of the canned lion hunting industry in South Africa. In his 2014 biography My Lion’s Heart, conservationist Gareth Patterson called me one of the “next generation of wildlife warriors.’’
