I’m Chris, the Volunteering Manager – you can talk to me about anything and everything volunteering-related!
I live with my partner Abbi, our beautiful daughter Ripley, and our incredibly needy cat Wiz; and when I’m not on campus, I try to spend as much time with them as possible. I play in a few bands and enjoy a good run whenever I can squeeze it in. I love pink shorts, red grapefruit, and Black Sabbath.
I graduated from the University of Kent with an MA in Literature, and since then I’ve had jobs in publishing, marketing, and events.
Before I came to the SU, I was the Front of House Manager at Colchester Arts Centre, but I’ve been involved with community spaces, and organised events – from vegan fairs to punk gigs – ever since I moved to Colchester.
If you see me around campus, feel free to stop me for a chat – especially if it’s about darts, obscure heavy metal, or vegan food.
