Eleana Overett

Eleana unfortunately can't claim to be a born and bred Londoner but has confirmed via ancestry.com that her family originated from Bethnal Green as far back as she can track them, so she feels a little better about it.

After a purely accidental career in Higher Ed, she made the switch to Londonist when her intense obsession with social media and London saw her explore, write about, and video the city for her blog and YouTube channel — and it turned out to be a lot more fun.
