Matt has worked in the Social Housing Sector for the last six years, having formally worked in the urban regeneration field during the “glory years” (in terms of funding!) of New Labour.

A keen cyclist (still dreaming of wearing the polka dot jersey on Mont Ventoux) and self-declared member of the sports-spectating intelligentsia he enjoys living in South London with his wife and being worn out by his young son.
