About me

My name's Tom and my pronouns are they/them.

I am a journalist, writer, copywriter and editor. I spent 10 years in politics and made a career switch to journalism in 2022. 

I have written for publications including the Times, the i newspaper, PinkNews, Metro and LADbible, and have appeared on BBC TV and radio, as well as LBC.

I recently finished an MA in Global Political Economy at the University of Sussex.

I'm currently working as a digital journalist at IEMA (0.8 FTE) and as a communications consultant at the TransCap Initiative (0.2 FTA).


Alongside my work, I'm studying for an NCTJ Diploma in Journalism which I am due to complete in July 2023.

Politics and communications

I was a political activist for 10 years, at the local, regional, national and international level, including as a candidate in two Westminster parliamentary elections.

This has given me excellent skills including political intelligence and strategic communications.

Climate action

My main interest is in the climate emergency.


According to the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C, we need "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" in order to avoid climate catastrophe.

This has been the focus of much of my professional life.

LGBTIQA+ activism

I founded a campaign called Include Mx in November 2020.

Include Mx is a campaign which celebrates organisations that include the gender-neutral title Mx on their forms, and encourages other organisations to add Mx if they have a title field.

The campaign has been featured in Metro, the i newspaper and PinkNews, and has successfully encouraged Next, River Island and Wilko to add Mx to their forms.
