How long have you lived in Croydon?
I have lived in Croydon all my life, but I had a brief spell in the South West of England for a few years before returning to my home in the Cronx.

Where’s your favourite place to eat here?
There are so many great eats, the vegan bowls in Ludoquist, the light vegan lunches in Crushed Bean or the vegan burgers at either Beer&Bgr or The Vegan Grill in Surrey Street Market. I never thought I could say vegan so many times in a sentence!

Where’s your favourite place to drink here?
I am a coffee addict! So for me it has to be Crushed Bean, Coffee Shooter and Smooth Bean all the way!

What’s your favourite thing to do in Croydon?
Go to Turf Projects and see their latest exhibition.

What’s the coolest thing about Croydon?
Tempting Failure! I mean I am biased but our biennial brings in artists from all around the world to perform for two weeks in Central Croydon in July! This year at TF18 we have 70 artists from 20 countries all taking part, alongside local and national artists.
