with Petra

What inspired your career journey?

I began in the mobile food business in 2005 when I hit the streets with Choc Star, Britain’s only dedicated chocolate van. I fell in love with the road, the community and with opening the hatch to people all over London and beyond. The next natural step was to consolidate this so that more people could be a part of the kerb life and London could grow a more interesting street life through food. I co-founded eat.st in 2009 and then moved on to found KERB in 2012. I now sit in the Evening Standards list of the top 1000 most influential Londoners.

What are your trend predictions for 2016?

Street food scaling up, tempered with a counter-counter cultural off-shoot from the renegades

Do you live by any motto or philosophy?

So piensas que tienes suerte, asi es!

What would your best piece of advice be for someone beginning his or her planning journey?
