Phillipa is a born and bred Londoner. From a family of Eastenders, she has a strong affiliation to the East End, yet fell in love with south London 15 years ago when she met her husband and moved to Blackheath, then Brockley.
She loves all aspects of the arts, particularly modern art and fringe theatre, and is particularly passionate about continuing this interest even with her two very young children in tow, capturing her experiences and recommendations via her blog artsaloud.wordpress.com.
Phillipa's biggest regret is not going into acting or presenting. She dreams of one day completing her Blue Badge to become an official London tour guide, and use her love of storytelling to bring the wonders of London to life for the many national and international visitors to the capital.
