Contributor

Lise was born north of the border but went to school in Croydon. After a few years recovering from the trauma of this experience in leafy Cambridge, she returned to the capital to teach dance, manage dancers and to write for a number of arts and technology publications. When not loitering in darkened theatres or leaping around with hyperactive seven-year-olds, Lise loves travel, skiing and live music. She has lived in both South and North London and currently resides in Archway, although if you’re looking for a good pub in New Cross she’s still a good person to ask.
