Spokesman for Housing, Community Safety, and HS2
Lead member for Audit & Corporate Governance
I've been a councillor for Hampstead Town since my election in 2015. As a son of Camden, I'm incredible proud to represent our borough: the greatest borough in the greatest city on Earth. I've lived in six wards across Camden - from Holborn to Hampstead. I went to university at UCL in Bloomsbury. My father grew up in Kentish Town and my mother lives in Frognal & Fitzjohns.
I want the best for all of our borough, especially Hampstead Town ward, which I call my home. I live in the heart of Hampstead village, on Flask Walk, and I want to keep both Camden and Hampstead special for the next generation.
I'm Camden Conservatives' spokesman for Housing, Community Safety, and HS2. In addition, as a councillor, I also take a particular interest in local conservation, planning, and quality of life issues. I use my professional expertise as an economist to scrutinise the borough's finances.
I'm also the Deputy Chairman (Political) of Hampstead & Kilburn Conservatives, taking overall responsibility for campaigning and the political output of the Association. This involves me in a huge number of campaigns, supporting our campaigners across the constituency. If there's a campaign that you would like us to be involved in, please get in contact and we'll do our best to stand up for you and our area.
I am a classical liberal Conservative, believing the free-markets work to improve everyone's lot in society: the worst-off most of all. I'm the Chairman of the Organising Committee of Conservative Way Forward, which promotes free-market policies, and was previously the National Chairman of Consevative Future, the party's youth wing. I also have particular interests in international and European affairs.
Professionally, I work as an economist in the City of London, having previously worked in journalism and education policy.
