About Me

A warm welcome :) and thanks in advance for reading my profile:

I am a native Londoner (London, United Kingdom) who is always smiling and has an upbeat attitude and a positive nature. For the past 3-4years i have been working in the world of digital marketing. In my spare time i volunteer for a non profit that empowers young people. I have a real passion for analogue and digital photography and find it really rewarding to capture someone in an image. I am also interested in world events, food, travelling and exploring(pretty obvious right?).

We live in an amazing world! It is a true pleasure to meet people from all around the world. To understand different cultures, ways of life and most importantly making awesome friends around the globe. I can honestly say my life has been enriched by meaningful connections while i have travelled.

As a native Londoner i more than happy to give you some tips and advice on London. What makes London so amazing that it is one big melting pot of cultures and communities from around the world So that means there food from around the world in London to explore. I am not always able to host but i can give you some advice on where to stay. Along with free things you can do in London and general tips on how to keep costs down as London can be expensive.
