About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To teach English and live in as many countries as possible.

ABOUT ME

I'm Marco, Half English, Half Italian but with a very English heart. I live in North London in a lovely green part called Barnet. I love this city.

I'm an English language teacher and also an artist/ Illustrator. I draw and paint a lot and all the bits in between.
I write songs and sing but prefer to keep that as a personal outlet rather than play live. I've bought a sitar and if I ever get round to it, I'd love to learn how to play it!
A bit of a foodie and love to cook.I make a good breakfast and English food. Yeah that's right, English food.

Spent a summer in Berlin and have been teaching English in Buenos Aires and travelling around South America. Back in London now!

Love meeting new people and going on little London adventures.

I like red wine and Ale. A lot. IPA. New hype
