Working for Magazines

I've always thought that in order to be successful at something, you have to immerse yourself in it. Only then can you really begin to build on your passion.

That's was one of the main driving forces behind my move into London. Another was the ability to have more meetings in town without it becoming an epic undertaking of cars and trains.
