He works as a legal consultant, leads Asylum Justice’s NRPF project, as well as being a founding director of a biopharma company.
Gareth is of Welsh-Colombian heritage and his upbringing and work has exposed him to many of the equalities, race, and other discriminatory issues we face today in Wales, the UK and globally. He is passionate about social justice and is particularly interested in the impact of climate change and ecological destruction on vulnerable and marginalized groups.
