Arcades Project featured on Inspiring Cardiff

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Gwion Thorpe, who, for some strange reason has decided that I’m the kind of person he’d like to feature on his new website, Inspiring Cardiff.

We spent a couple of hours waxing lyrical in (where else) The New York Deli and then Gwion managed to take some photos of me that weren’t horrendous – a miracle it has to be said.

Gwion is hoping to meet some more people in and around Cardiff who are doing inspiring things, so if you’re a creative bod, business bod, general person of interest bod, then do get in touch with him – I’m sure he’d love to meet you.

For now, you can read the post about me, which, even if I do say so myself is rather lovely.
