Two favorite cities and why…

Bath, UK because of it’s beautiful Roman and Medieval architecture, thriving and established art and music scene. At one point it had the largest cubic area of creative industries in one place, it’s another great place to drink coffee and take it all in.
Barcelona, Spain because of it’s place in cultural southwest Europe, it’s climate, the Art Nouveau movement, it’s such a great place to sit in cafe’s wasting away time drinking coffee and taking in all the different people that populate the city.

I work as a photographer and designer heading up the creative agency Mackie Studio.What makes you LOL?

What is your life’s motto/philosophy?
I have always thought the meaning of life represents something or communicates something. For me, that’s to never take a day for granted and to take this life we have and run with it, do as much as one can, live the dream, achieve your goals, pass it on to your children and keep smiling.

I like to think they would say I was a nice, genuine friend….but I think if you asked them, their answer might be somewhat eccentric
