Kyra Hanson

Kyra grew up in Hainault and has spent most of her life perpetually fleeing her hometown (and its Essex associations) in pursuit of London's culture and nightlife. When she's not frantically meeting deadlines you'll most likely find her buried in a book squeezed into the corner of a Central line carriage. She enjoys gallery-hopping, always takes the scenic route and has a weakness for large glasses of house wine. She freelances for Londonist and Time Out.
