Favourite place for brunch:
Best coffee in London:
Omotesando Koffee. Found out about this gem last year. It’s definitely worth the visit.
Favourite gallery or museum:
National Portrait Gallery.
Tell us a secret:
I want to visit Seoul, Korea in the next year. Always been fascinated with the Far East especially Korea. I like to explore obscure destinations with a limited amount of tourists and I think Korea ticks that box.
Favourite place to shop:
On the SNKRS app. Easiest and hardest places to get the fire trainers.
Favourite place to find inspiration:
The Southbank by far. It has an energy which makes me feel like I’m in London and London inspires me.

Favourite food market:
Your sanctuary in the city:
