Biography

Tom was elected to the London Assembly as a London-wide List member in May 2012.

He recently led an investigation into the challenges facing small theatres in London on behalf of the Assembly's Economy Committee. This led to the Centre Stage report which sets out an action plan to help London's smaller venues.

He is currently Deputy Chair of the Assembly's Housing Committee.

Prior to his election to the Assembly, Tom worked for the Searchlight Educational Trust - an anti-fascist, anti-racist charity that works with communities to fight racism and hatred. He has also worked for the Labour Party and the Health Protection Agency.

Tom is a patron of LGBT Labour and an elected trustee of the British Humanist Association.

Originally from Derbyshire, Tom grew up in Wiltshire and has lived in London for most of the last eight years.
