A little more about me.
What’s your day job?
I’m a copywriter, specialising in music.
Who/what inspires you to cook?
A combination of things; travel, my favourite chefs, books, street food, restaurants, my mum and often just my imagination. I try not to limit myself.
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon 700d with various lens’. I also have an Olympus film camera for travelling with. 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, Morocco or the middle east – this is the kind of food I love!
Have you ever lived abroad?
Berlin stole my heart in the summer of 2014. I lived there for a few months travel writing and meeting some amazing people. It has the hipster culture and gritty aesthetic of east London, but the effortless style and trendiness of New York’s city slickers all rolled into one. For a city so big and diverse it was never overcrowded or suffocating. Berlin mingles so many elements perfectly well yet holds its own. If you’re into history, art, pop culture, music and fashion – it’s a must-do.
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?
Mainly Instagram for personal use and of course this here blog. It’s my little escape from reality & place for visual inspiration. Follow me for regular posts.
What’s your favourite thing about London?
I moved here from Birmingham, so that wil always be home, you know? But here I feel a sense of freedom. I love the food, the continuous buzz, the light, the street style, the green spaces, the creative expression – I could go on. One of my favourite things to do is discover new places to eat, chill and shop.
Have you ever wanted to write a recipe book?
Yes, I’d love to. It’s still on the bucket list.
