I currently manage the Gendered Ceremony and Ritual in Parliament project. I am a graduate of Warwick University where I did an MA in Humanities including Human Rights Law and Caribbean Literature. I have published papers and articles on Gender and Sexuality including subversive discourse in popular cultural expressions of Jamaica. My professional background is in managing voluntary sector projects which meet UK Government targets of closing gaps in various inequalities, be it in health, education or social development. I previously chaired Coventry Growth Initiatives, a not for profit organisation which I developed to meet the professional and social needs of marginalised yet highly skilled, ethnic minorities within UK. I currently manage a successful catering business in Coventry called Caribbean Climates.
