About me

In early 2008 I was diagnosed as autistic (specifically Asperger’s syndrome). At the time I was in the second year of a part time masters in History and Philosophy of Science at Leeds University. After completing the Masters I started researching philosophy of psychiatry and the history of autism.

I am a vegan, primarily for ethical reasons. Becoming vegan is, in my experience, relatively easy and I think there are strong ethical grounds for doing so.

I only buy fair-trade clothes or second hand clothes. I think there are strong ethical grounds for ensuring that people who make our clothes are paid a sufficient level that they can have a decent life.

I have tried multiple times to go plastic free but failed. Any advice here would be most welcome.

I am a member of the Labour party, you can join here:

I make monthly donates to four charities:
