Having recently moved to London from Washington DC, I have found the Club a real home from home. I currently advise the Fore Trust (a philanthropic foundation that funds small charities) on their grants programme and impact evaluation. Previously, I have worked in international development, on education policy, and as a macroeconomist at a think tank.
I’m firmly committed to the liberal character of our Club, as those shared principles also animate my volunteer work. I serve on the Executive Committee of the civil liberties group, Liberty, and, as a party member, also serve on an Appeals Panel for the Liberal Democrats. I now sit on both the Club’s General Purposes and Beer, Wine and Spirits Committees.
I am an avid theatregoer, and serve on the board of the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill. I’m also a competitive storyteller, and have performed in London, Tokyo, and Washington DC. I’m also hoping we can get an NLC cricket club together, so that I can join — once I learn how to play! (Rahul joined the Club in 2019 and was elected to Gen Cttee in 2021)
