Coffee with Daisy
On Mondays we like to share a short format interview with one of our wider Gather community members. Just a handful of questions with a generous helping of everyday inspiration to tuck into over your morning cuppa. This week, meet Daisy.
Daisy has selected this week's coffee vibe for you with, Love is Back by musician, Celeste:
"Not everyone has your best interests at heart. But just keep trying hard and doing your best! You will find what feels like home and you will find all your people."
What part(s) of the world do you call home?
South East London is the first place I ever really felt at home, and I moved there two and a half years ago. I think it’s funny that it took until I was in my twenties to find this feeling, considering I’ve lived all over the place! Right now, I’m unexpectedly living in Sevenoaks. Not my first choice, but I am so grateful to call it home at the moment. Because it’s so lush here, I am now utterly obsessed with birds– goldfinches are my current favourite!
I grew up in Bury St Edmunds and then moved to Perth, Western Australia when I was twelve. The minute I graduated from University I moved to Edinburgh during the Fringe (big mistake) then slowly made my way down to the other capital. My partner is from Pembrokeshire so I now feel endlessly thankful that I get to call that part of Wales another one of my many homes. SE London has my heart though!
What is your industry, hustle, current project or passion?
Podcasting! I’m currently entering a new phase in my career, leaving behind hospitality (thank god) to turn my side-hustle into a full-time freelancing gig. I’d been grinding in hospo since 2013, so it’s been a long time coming for me. I hate to sound like one of those annoying people who says the pandemic motivated them… but the pandemic motivated me to change paths and, according to the tarot cards my girlfriend read to me last night, I made the right decision.
I currently produce Come As You Are and The Body Protest, two podcasts that I’m super proud of and know you’ll love if you’re a part of Gather!
