I have lived in Highbury since 1995 and North London for my whole life. After spending 27 years in the City, I switched careers and joined Hotblack Desiato as a Sales Negotiator in 2016. After working for 18 months in the Islington office I spent 2 ½ years the Highbury office and have now moved to Camden. One of the benefits of being a local agent living in the area that I work is that I can justify going to the local hostelries in the evening in the name of research (Well that’s what I tell my partner). My children all went to local schools and have now gone on to further education, so now I have a little more time to indulge in my passion for local history and I also have a keen interest in cycling, both road and touring. Every other weekend I like to torture myself by watching Arsenal play, although having been a season ticket holder for over 33 years you would think that I’d know better!
