About

Hi folks, I’m Maurice, a Dublin-born London cabbie. Having lived here for more than 20 years, I agree with Samuel Johnson: “tired of London, tired of life.” Finally I’ve a profession I’m proud of, after many a year and many a job; DJ-ing in Belgrade, operating computers in Ireland, waiting tables in New York, and film acting alongside the likes of Pierce Brosnan and Heath Ledger… And I’m only 49!

I enjoy Scrabble, motorcycles, food, tennis, theatre, film, guitar, art, comedy, chairs, wristwatches and fashion.

I like to inspire and encourage others to make the most of life, especially Knowledge folk. My favourite philosophies are “there’s always a way” and “whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right”.

I’m blogging to enthuse others about London, to exercise my creative side, and hopefully share some wisdom along the way.

Thanks for dropping by, folks!
