Biography

I grew up in Botallack with the fields and cliffs as my playground. I attended both primary and secondary school in St Just and have always been a very active member of many of the parish’s community groups. Among others; St Just and Pendeen Pantos, Nancherrow Youth Club and of course Lafrowda Festival (I’ve only missed one year due to flooding on the train track at Dawlish!)

At University I studied Animation Production before moving to London for 6 years. I fully enjoyed the rich range of cultures but missed my home, and the sea, and moved back in 2015.

I have recently been heavily affected by the climate emergency. I am keen on all things ecological, working to live off grid myself, whilst retaining my modern life (it’s easier than you think!) I understand that we need system change quickly in order to make any serious difference, and have therefore been involved in protests against government in London, but I also believe in grassroots community input and want to rouse enthusiasm and pride in St Just and Pendeen becoming self-sufficient, as soon as possible.

I am a founder of the Care and Repair Café in St Just and I want to help more initiatives such as; A tool library, community compost bins, more community veg growing, planting food trees, water saving systems, wind turbines, education on local economy, making the most out of our land and not relying on Big Money.

Working together selflessly will become the modern way of thinking and I want to encourage it. Tradition and heritage have their place, but total equality and safety for all living things is far more important, no matter their species, race, gender or sexual orientation.

Elected to council December 2019.
