I am totally and irrevocably in love with Edinburgh, its architecture, its cafes, its culture and its people. I came to this city as a young student, returned to do a postgraduate degree and then - as so many of us - got stuck and never looked back.
My favourite holiday destinations are the Outer Hebrides, the south Baltic (not as cold as many believe), and I have recently discovered the beauty of Iceland.
My job is arty and dangerous at the same time. Not many of those around.
I love Icelandic crime and Scandinavian design. I crossed the Alps on my motorbike. My biggest passion is outdoor swimming in the reservoirs, in stormy seas or even just a big puddle (ask me for recommendations). I like the smell of books and could easily spend days in Edinburgh´s bookshops.
I couldn't imagine life in Edinburgh without my bicycle. I am fond of dark chocolate, enjoy live music and love catching the last rays of sunshine in autumn.
