What brought you to Brighton and Hove?

I came to visit arts students and university students that I studied in London with. After applying for Arts School and not getting in I stayed in Brighton for the high creative atmosphere of visual and audio art.

What’s your favourite place in Brighton and Hove?

Definitely the seafront.

darren12How do you relax?

I cycle as far as I can and when I’ve forgotten why I was cycling I go back!

What living person do you most admire?

I’ll start with the most meaningful one to me, it’s my mum, as a single mother I was brought up well and I’m aware of choices.

I try to make as many choices that will maximise my experience of life that are safe and can contribute to community.
