‘Johnny Fox’ studied Theatre at Lancaster University and Journalism at City before realising there was no money in either profession and concentrating instead on interior design for investment banks. He lived and worked in other cities including Singapore, New York, and Moscow but has been a committed adoptive Londoner for thirty years.  Living in Docklands is a perpetual anticipation that some infrastructure will eventually emerge or that the Jubilee Line and DLR will work one day, but the bend of the river seen on approach into London City Airport still gladdens his heart.His urban passions include theatre, singing, consumer terrorism, wine, architecture and London’s dark underbelly, and he’s written for everything from The Pink Paper to The Architects Journal. Here’s his personal blog.
