I love the Brixton markets, they are about as far from the food aisle of any multi national supermarket as you can imagine. One minute you can be in Thailand, then Jamaica via Turkey the next. Franco Manco is pretty busy, but it’s very special to me.
Although my skating days are now over, Stockwell Skatepark located just behind Brixton Academy is one of the reasons I moved to Brixton. It’s an excellent place, lumpy and hectic but totally friendly with decent Portuguese coffee and cakes just next door.
I didn’t know it existed until I moved to Brixton. Brockwell Park has been a revelation to me, it’s beautiful with many secrets. Check out the outdoor theatre in the summer up by the old house - Midsummer Night’s Dream last year on a midsummer’s night was astoundingly good.
After a certificate in communication and advertising, I spent 15 years working as a public relation agent in fashion, events, digital, art school and TV fields. I recently decided to change my career into interior design.
Back to university, I started in October 2014 a Graduate Diploma Interior Design at Chelsea College of Arts (UAL) and graduated with distinction in June 2015 receiving the Dean's Award in recognition of outstanding academic improvement and achievement.
