“I’m a London-born artist and writer for juvenile sectors. From as long as I can remember I always wanted to live in NYC. In 2010 I became a permanent resident. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I love this City so much and I think it’s one of the best places on earth to raise a family. I wanted to create an info hub where new parents could find useful NYC-related tips and resources. Baby Does … NYC, is the result.
