I’m an emerging independent British Filmmaker, Writer & Performer by trade & Social Justice & Equality Ambassador by conviction, whose mixed-race, gay & Scouse. A new style of UK creative talent, with an alternative voice. I was born in Liverpool, spent 10 years in Manchester & now live in London. I’m the last child of 11, a great uncle & at the age of 26 became an adult orphan when My Mum died from ovarian cancer. I’m white English & black Caribbean of Irish & Barbadian descent, & although raised a Catholic I now find Buddhism of interest.
In 2009, I was diagnosed with depression after racism & homophobia whilst a Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Detective. In 2010, The Sun newspaper unlawfully obtained & paid for my private data & threatened to publish it along with an untrue story about me because I raised discrimination within Scotland Yard Special Branch. The leak to News Corp by the Met tried to discredit me & stop my complaints, the tabloid intending to make public my sexuality, illness & sensitive intelligence role. I fully came out of the ‘closet’ on my terms, in a gay magazine.
In 2011, I challenged the Police Commissioner at an employment court with my career ending in 2012 after a decade of public service having been a Greater Manchester Police Criminal Investigation Detective. In 2013, I further fought for justice after the MPS appealed the original judgment that ruled I had been discriminated. I now pursue the Arts & Charity through my writing & filmmaking work whilst championing injustice & inequality, utilising my investigative & interviewing skills. My philosophy is Live Healthy, Laugh Often & Love Yourself!
