“I got started working as a software developer when my partner and I first arrived in London twenty years ago. I’ve lived a fairly uneventful life, so this winter I’m going to build a mini-furnace in my garden where I can have a go at metal casting.”



Lives in Stratford, East London. A sustainability blogger who envisions a disposable-plastic free city. Changing the food system from the inside at Get Loose Foods, challenges rail companies on water fountains, book swap guardian and loves a litter pick.



Flit between London & the West. Work for a software start-up and spend most of my time playing, watching or boring on about some sort of sport. Slow but steady eco-convert.
