I work at the UK's Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) to drive publication of spatial data from across the public sector under the EU INSPIRE Directive.

I'm a geographic data specialist with experience of developing well regarded strategies, systems and processes. I have experience of leading successful teams and building trusting professional communities accross organisations.

I've been involved in several cross-sector initiatives including the initiation of the UK Public Sector Mapping Agreement with Ordnance Survey. I have been a member of the Association for Geographic Information's (AGI) Event's Working Group, and involved in running GeoCommunity one of the UK's largest GI Conferences for several years.
