About me

I am a London based writer and broadcaster. I have written for and appeared on award winning shows and publications Spiked, TalkTV, the BBC, GB News, The Spectator and The Sun. I also have a newsletter. Please sign up to it here.

I am a frequent guest panellist on the GB News Breakfast Show, Plank of the Week and The Spiked Podcast.

My background is in political theory and I am fascinated by people, ideas, technology, online discourse, and how all these interact. I am also deeply passionate about free speech and have debated and written lots about free expression in the social media era. Please watch my TalkTV discussion with Julia Hartley-Brewer on this subject. I regularly appear on her TalkTV breakfast show. Also check out my archive on Spiked and The Spectator

I like having frank debates, especially about subjects that are controversial or difficult. I want to hear what people genuinely think and that can only happen in an open culture with free speech and good faith discussion.
