My story, and that of everybody involved, is weaved deep into everything you see here.

Wanting to make a difference, I gathered a few people around a big idea and we conceived One&Other.  That’s the short version.

It’s now become something of an obsession but I still make time for a handful of guilty pleasures.  The list constantly rotates but these days I find I’m hooked on travelling (doing a disappearing act in Europe when I can), writing (ok so it’s technically work), overpaying for new fads (and then losing/dropping them), far too many late nights (too easily led), and the daily escapism I find only a long run or swim can provide.

York is my adopted home and it’s been good to me.  I love that so many people are passionate about its creative underbelly and believe in its potential to give back.

One day, soon, I’d love to see sister One&Other’s pop up around the globe. Who knows…
