Having lived in 4 countries and visited more than 30 countries and 15 US states, I've experienced firsthand the ups and downs of finding accommodation that is modern, amenity-equipped and good value for money. I've experimented with living alone, in student housing, flat shares and likes in mainly cosmopolitan cities such as London and Los Angeles. Until I came across The Collective Old Oak – a revolutionary take on housing that is centered on collective based living (co-living). Not only did it tick my criteria's, but it caused transformational changes in my life, which lead me to discover my purpose and inspired me to start my own business. It's very rare that a housing complex can incite such transformation. Check-out my Waitrose Magazine feature on 'Flat share for the future.'
