I am an architect and run a practice with my husband in North London, we have teenage children.
I grew up in Hastings and stay there often to see friends and family and gain peace and quiet from London. I enjoy the light the space and the eccentricity of the town. Its not too far to commute from sometimes.
We travelled to California last summer and discovered airbnb. We enjoyed staying in lovely places in San Francisco and Los Angeles and meeting the people involved. Its a really good invention!
