Freelancing in a pandemic world is tricky and so making enough money to survive is a goal. I'm keen to do more to help the LGBTQ+ community. As a gay/queer man, I feel it is my responsibility in my professional field and personal life to be more involved in activism and human rights. I know I can help to change the English Language Teaching industry by being more inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. I believe that training is one way to go. The LGBT Foundation Champions Package training is £500.
I'm a freelance ELT writer, editor and DEI consultant. After being made redundant from my teaching job in 2017, I decided to retrain and now I have a book published with my name on it! Having lost my father to a massive stroke very suddenly in March 2017, as well as being made redundant, really made 2017 my 'annus horribilis'. I have been freelance since 2018 and am working constantly on editing and writing in the ELT industry.
