Home is…
Anywhere I can laugh until my sides hurt.

Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
I don’t think there is anything.

What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?
I would run a studio ghibli marathon in one of the cinemas and have all you can eat cake buffet.

Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?

The Ulster Museum with the right company.

Celebrity crush?
(fictional) Vash the Stampede

Describe your perfect day in the city?
Hunting for craft materials and fabric with friends, looking for a bargain.

What’s the last major event you attended in Belfast?
My big brother’s 30th at Lavery’s.

Favourite restaurant
Grafitti for the best steak and Sakura for the best ramen.

Favourite bar or club
Probably one of the new outdoor roof gardens that Lavery’s has added in the last few years.

Best place in Belfast to spend a fiver
Q-CON (longest running local anime and video game convention which runs one June weekend a year).

What movie most closely resembles your life story and why
I am not sure, maybe the movie with Robin Williams called Jack?
I had Lymphoblastic Leukemia for a large portion of my childhood which left me a little bit isolated from my peers and I had periods of being bullied and being popular due to trying to be myself which some people didn’t like.
I found school a little oppressive also.
However I gained a whole new confidence when I went to university and decided I was happier in myself and realised no one else has the right to judge me, and the only person’s opinion I need to care about is my own and people respected me for that and not pretending to be something I wasn’t.

Sum up Belfast in three words?
We’re getting there.
