About me.

Bio

I am a social researcher, researching and writing about all things charity and philanthropy. My main interests lie in high net worth philanthropy, and the intersections between philanthropic individuals, organisations, and public policy.

Outside of work, I can usually be found hiking hills, baking some goodies in the kitchen, or pottering about the garden.
