Since moving to London from Washington DC, I have found the Club a real home from home and am honoured to have now been elected Vice-Chair of the Club. I also Chair the Club’s Catering Committee and sit on the Beer, Wine and Spirits Committee.
I’m firmly committed to the liberal character of our Club, as those shared principles also animate my volunteer work. I serve on the Policy Council of the civil liberties group, Liberty, and, as a party member, also serve on the complaints panels for the Liberal Democrats.
I currently assist philanthropic and international development organisations with strategic planning and impact evaluation. Previously, I have worked on education policy, and as a macroeconomist at a think tank.
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 what is now the Members’ Council in in 2021)
