Hi I’m Tom and you elected me to be your Union Development and Democracy Officer. It’s my job to help develop KeeleSU to make sure it’s responding to the needs of students while acting as a voice for Keele students on issues and campaigns they care about in the University, local community and nationally.

I studied International Relations and Politics, my particular interest was around statebuilding and the politics of development. As an undergraduate I helped run various political and campaigning societies such as Model UN and Debate and Discussion Society alongside being a Student Voice Representative, part time officer and Parish Councillor. My hobbies include playing classical guitar, reading, watching the West Wing and video games.
