I am a happily married man, working as a teacher, living in south west London (i.e. suburbia). My family originates from India, but my parents were born in East-Africa, I have a Portuguese surname, I was born in the UK and brought up a Catholic. Suffice it to say, growing up was complicated.
Being a teacher is one of the funniest jobs you can do, but it’s also given me an insight into what teenagers have to deal with. It keeps me young, and I’m inspired by making a difference to people as they move into adulthood. Especially boys.
The particular challenge my wife and I currently face is our fertility. I’ve found myself questioning my masculinity – and discovered that male fertility is an area that receives little or no attention or support. This means it’s something I talk about a lot! Writing gives me the chance to open up a conversation and inspire people to take action.
