How I came to BrightonI travelled in Australia and South East Asia between 1988 and 1990, after I graduated from Keele University. Some friends I met up with in Australia came back to England ahead of me and moved to Brighton, where I followed when I ran out of money. I fell in love here, both with the town and someone in it, so I stayed.
What I like about BrightonBrighton's small enough to live within walking distance of friends, pubs and clubs. It doesn't suffer too much from small town mentality, though. It keeps an open mind.
The Royal Pavilion, my favourite building, is a camp, gaudy imitation of The Taj Mahal that reflects the town's character as a bit of a show off. No one seems to want to grow up here.
What I dislike about BrightonThe sea's too polluted and dirty to swim in.
No one seems to want to grow up here.
Some biographical notesI teach media studies and freelance in radio.
Eating, dancing and travelling are a few of my favourite things.
