I live in Brighton, England, where I’m making the most of living right by the sea, ten minutes from the South Downs National Park, and in the midst of all the quirkiness that Brighton has to offer. I moved back to Brighton in September 2020, after six years living in Washington, D.C., because Brighton Rocks!
I am currently the Executive Director for Global Integrity, a non-profit organization based out of the Open Gov Hub, which we co-founded and run. We are a kick-ass team of creative and committed folks from Canada, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, Nepal, Poland, Spain, the UK, the USA, and Zimbabwe.
The focus of our work is on supporting partners around the world to address corruption and improve the use of public resources, to improve people’s lives. As per our strategy, we do this by supporting locally-led cycles of politically-engaged action, learning and adaptation at local, national and international levels.
I worked previously for The One Campaign, the UK’s Department for International Development (in Ethiopia and London), the Overseas Development Institute, the UK Parliament’s International Development Select Committee, the Open University, and the University of Cambridge. My LinkedIn profile and CV is here.
When I’m not trying to put listening, learning, and the expertise of frontline partners at the centre of the governance and development agenda, I’m likely to be messing around on my mountain bike, or, when the English weather plays ball, messing around in the sea.
