I loose track who I’ve told and who has just heard earlier stages of the plan… so here’s an explanation about my imminent move to London.
Essentially for the last 6 months I have been wondering whether to move. After 3 years based predominantly in Brussels I felt it was time for something new, or at least a different challenge. Despite the appeal of Berlin I’ve opted to move back to London. The reasons for this are essentially professional – the scale of the web projects I am managing for clients in London gets larger and larger, and the clients more and more high profile – Diane Abbott and Ken Livingstone for example. I’m doing all of that while not being in London more than a couple of days a month… so what can I do if I’m there all the time? Plus the cost of regular Eurostar trips is mounting.
I’ve now found a flat for my move to London – in Bow in East London, between Victoria Park and Bow Road tube station. For the political nerds that’s Bethnal Green & Bow constituency, represented by Rushanara Ali MP (who happens to be one of my web clients). I get the keys to the place on 20th August and will shift my stuff to London on 12th September. Between now and then I’ll mostly be in Brussels, with a couple of short trips to visit friends in Stockholm and family in France.
So that’s the plan. Where’s the next interesting web campaign?
