My wife Angie and I are business consultants specialising in charities and we also make independent films on lgbt themes which now takes up 90% of our time. Our films screen at festivals around the world and we tag along if we can. Here at home we host film nights and theatrical events and collaborate with local and international filmmakers and queer artists.
We're both open and friendly, enjoy hearing life stories and are fascinated by the choices people make. We love our house and the area in which we live and make the most of what's going on at the end of our road in Streatham Hill, (trendy) and nearby towns Clapham (gay district) Balham (bohemian) and Brixton (hipster) as well as the amazing range of choice in central London, but inside our front door is peace and quiet to contrast. Invitations to dinner or events are likely to happen while you're here (but are not obligatory!)
We also have an apartment in Spain, have traveled widely in Europe and had trips to Turkey, the US, Canada, Australia and to Sierra Leone. We prefer Airbnb and house swaps when we travel because its more personal and we always get introduced to fascinating things about a local area and that simply doesn't happen when staying in hotels. We also like to food shop and cook something familiar when tiring of restaurants.... and to be able to do our laundry - we have been caught out a couple of time with unexpected weather. We also MUST be able to get 24 internet and all these things are provided when we host house because it is what we seek for ourselves as guests.
Angie used to be a London taxi driver, so we know London extremely well and can guide you about the best places to visit, shop, eat and also all the things that you can do for free in London (there are lots more than you'd imagine).
We are both Humanists which means we don't believe in any religious deity but we do believe in and invest our time in people and communities and have as much fun as we can while we can.
