With actor Kenny Doughty in the Lorraine green room.

Diagnosed with autism in 2011, I am an Ambassador for the National Autistic Society. I have campaigned on issues affecting autistic adults at a local and national level and made regular appearances at conferences and in the media - most notably with John Harris on BBC Radio 4, but also in The Guardian and on ITV's Lorraine.

I have been involved for several years in campaigning for open access to research and accessibility in spaces relating to open research, open data and open education. 

I also campaign for LGBTQ and disability rights, for greater diversity and inclusivity in sport and the arts and against austerity measures.
