What’s your name and how did you come to be a regular at Crave?

Jan Whiley and I’ve been coming to Crave forever, about 10 years pre- expansion. Also, I started at the gym and then became a regular at Crave, this is my treat

Tell us a bit about your story. How did you arrive where you are today?
Usually, do a workout or class at the gym and straight round to Crave but today I’m a bit lethargic so I came straight to Crave to meet a friend.

What do you like most about the neighbourhood?
Crave café!

What do you consider to be the most imperative values that all of humanity craves?
Meaningful connection with family, friends, work and wider connections like what Crave is doing. Also global connections like supporting overseas causes.

Trim Cappuccino, single shot, super hot (I drive the new baristas crazy!!)

Can you remember and express a moment in life that was defining for you in how it shaped the way you live?
Some unpleasant conflict between my parents and I made a conscious decision to be fiercely independent which was a driving force. I was the first in my family to complete high school and go on to University.
