I'm Joseph, and I work for an NGO about the Middle East called Caabu (Council for Arab British Understanding). I've also been a bit of a political journalist, and have done some freelance work in the past - it's probably something I should do a bit more of. I've lived in London since 2006 when I came to study English literature at King's College London, and have lived at my flat in Clapton, Hackney since December 2011. Have travelled quite extensively, mainly around the Middle East. Iran, Lebanon, and Syria where I spent several months as an English teacher in Homs ( (website hidden)).
I've a tendency to tweet a lot about the Middle East (and other stuff too) from @josephwillits, if you're interested.
I look forward to hearing from you all on here. It has been great so far. Of course, you're always very welcome to come and stay :)
