A little more about me.
What’s your day job?
I’m a content editor, currently in financial services. I’m also a freelance copywriter and magazine editor in my spare time.
Who/what inspires you to cook?
A combination of things; travel, tv chefs, books, street food, creative restaurant menus, my parents and often just my imagination.
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon 700d with various lens’. I also have an Olympus 35mm film camera for travelling. To edit photos, I use Photoshop, VSCO Cam and Lightroom.
What country have you visited that has the best cuisine?
This is a hard one. My family are Jamaican, so for me I’ve always enjoyed traditional Caribbean food. I’ve travelled to a lot of places but I’m yet to visit India or Morocco – I love these cuisines!
Have you ever lived abroad?
Yes, in 2014 Berlin stole my heart. I lived there for a couple of months on travel writing course and met some amazing people. It has the hipster culture and gritty aesthetic of east London, but the effortless style and trendiness of New York all rolled into one. For a city so big and diverse it was never overcrowded or suffocating. If you’re into art history, fashion, pop culture or music, it’s a must-visit! There’s some great vintage shops and cool museums over there.
What made you start NWC?
Other than my love for good food? Friends, family and social media’s influence.
What other social media do you use?
You can follow nwc on Instagram; it’s my little space for visual inspiration and I document my travels. You can follow me on Twitter too.
What’s your favourite thing about London?
I moved here from the Midlands, so that will always be home. What I love most about London is the sense of freedom and energy, no matter what time of day. I enjoy the food scene, the light, the continuous buzz, the street style, the green spaces – I could go on. One of my favourite things to do is discover new places to eat out and shop.
Have you ever wanted to write a recipe book?
Yes, I’d love to start off with an e-book. It’s on the bucket list…
