About me

Hello. I'm a born and bred Londoner of mixed ethnic origin, I work freelance as a futures researcher, trend forecaster and journalist. My work is all about uncovering patterns across socio-cultural phenomena, and my interest is usually piqued by all things future-focused. Aside from my work, you can usually find me with my head in a book, at the latest electro music night, swimming marathon lengths at my local pool or worshipping my cat (the latter of which you can find on Twitter @yokodacat).

Always up for having a coffee, beer, or just a chinwag, so don't hesitate to drop me an email.
