Service Manager (He/Him)
At Hummingbird I manage our awesome team of programme leads and specialist support workers, seeking to provide the best environment and tools to support young refugees in their often difficult journey. I particularly appreciate working with a team of people that listen to and learn from young people in the development and delivery of our services.
Born and raised on the island of Bermuda, I have worked for over 14 years in the charity sector, primarily with young people and refugees. Prior to my current role at Hummingbird, I worked in Dallas, Texas, USA developing and leading refugee support programmes in the areas of friendship, education, employment, and advocacy.
I came to the UK in 2019 to pursue an MA in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex and was introduced to the work of the Hummingbird Project by a classmate. My hope is that young refugees and asylum seekers feel welcomed and are empowered to flourish, as our local community works together to create a warm, welcoming city, and systems that are just and equitable.
