bioI am a writer, researcher and blogger. I wrote my first book called Loan Sharks: The Rise and Rise of Payday Lending published in 2012 by Searching Finance and have written for many publications including the Guardian, New Statesman, Jewish Chronicle and Credit Today Magazine. Since then I have been interviewed about debt, the economy and finance by, among others, the BBC, Sky News, LBC Radio and Channel 4. My next book, on the global growth of payday lenders, will be published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2014.

I’ve addressed conferences and spoken at meetings – if you would like me to do something similar contact me here.

I have worked for, and with, many organisations from think-tanks to charities and social enterprises in many different fields including children’s policy, education, health and finance.
