I became interested in Green politics in my teens, originally joining CND and the Green Party (or the Ecology Party as it was then called) in 1983. I have been campaigning hard on many environmental and social issues for most of my life, most recently on air pollution.
I stood in the 2010, 2017 and 2019 General Elections as the Green Party’s candidate for Maidstone and the Weald and regularly stand in local government elections, getting 23% in 2012. I have been the party’s spokesperson on health and on their Executive as Policy Coordinator. I have been the chair of Kent Greens for the past 10 years.
I am also an animist Pagan Druid. For me, the world is sacred, alive and conscious.
In my spare time I work in the NHS as a manager, write novels and I am a qualified nurse. I am currently working on a new venture: The Cernunnos Centre providing workshops, education, consultancy and coaching in vein of Deep Adaptation.
I am 52, married to Dawn and we have a daughter Poppy, and we live in central Maidstone.
