Hey, I'm an American living in London, and my family is from the Netherlands. I've been in the UK for about eight years and been in Hackney for five of them. I really love the area I live in and have enjoyed watching it grow and change over the time I've been here. I work as a social researcher, supporting the design and delivery of better public services. I enjoy cooking and good food, squash, yoga, hanging out with friends, and having a drink and a laugh at the pub. I have travelled quite a bit myself and genuinely look forward to meeting people that I host as well as sharing with people all the best places and sites in London that I've experienced over the years.
