He is currently the Director of Fundraising at ActionAid UK, the international charity supporting women and girls living in poverty. Before this he spent 15 years at the UK homelessness charity Crisis in roles spanning supporter appeals, supporter services and legacy and philanthropy fundraising, before becoming their Director of Fundraising in 2012.
