Favourite neighbourhood:

Waterloo because it’s right by the water. Also close to everything but feels doesn’t feel as overly fast paced.


Favourite place for brunch:

Cheeky Nando’s.


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.


Best London destination for a date:

Bocca Di Lupo for an Italian, then on to Two Floors on Kingly Street.


Favourite park:

Hampstead Heath.


Favourite food market:

Borough Market.


Your sanctuary in the city:

A cosy and quiet cinema.


What inspires you?

Free Love and open minds. If you have this you can gain inspiration without looking for it.
