About Me


Working In Paris - Metro Boulot Dodo so far!


BA(Hons) Business Management graduate. Living in Paris while working as an English Teacher for employees at L'Oreal, GDF Suez, Publicis and many others.

I am from a town near to Brighton on the South East Coast of England, but I have lived in London for the past 4 years. Now I have swapped Apple Pie and Roast Beef for Cordon Bleu and Pain au Chocolat.

I like football (I supported Chelsea FC before Abramovich came in) but I don't like the culture of the footballers and the commodification of the clubs just the actual sport!

Big film fan as well - can talk for days about it.

Lastly I like travelling, socialising with people from all walks of life across the globe.
