My name is Luca and I am a 38 years old rock & metal musician. I was born in Bergamo, Italy, and have lived and worked in Cairo, Serbia, Australia, Brazil, Spain and now England. I am a big personality with lots of stories and I love to talk to everyone. I live & play gigs in Camden so I know the area really well. I also know other areas of the city that are great for urban and music scenes.

I'm a quirky half-Japanese, half-Mexican mum to a 1 year old, adorable little monster that keeps me on my toes. I've lived in London for 23 years but have also lived in Mexico, Japan and Spain. London for me is one of the most exciting cities as it breeds some of the most creative minds in the world and constantly surprises us with new things to see and experience. I have many friends that live abroad and when they visit I want them to see the city beyond the post-card London so that they also fall in love with this incredible city. Book me so I can take you on relaxed walking explorations of the city, or if you want to find baby-friendly, interesting things to do in town that are not the usual "themed" restaurants or playgrounds. I also know the alternative area of Brixton very well so if you want to discover one of London's coolest neighbourhoods that not many tourists know about then I'm your Local!

I'm an American expat in London for over 17 years. I've always been an Anglophile and moved to the U.K. because of my love of British history, culture, pop culture, music, fashion, television, and movies. I'm a bit of a geek but I guess some people would consider me to be cool. I'm a very creative, artistic person and have two Bachelor degrees; one in fashion design and the other in media production. I'm also a DJ and have worked in the music industry on and off for years. I fell in love with London the moment I stepped off the plane at Heathrow and basically became a Londoner by the time the Piccadilly line got into central London. I love the diversity of London. I love the history and architecture. I love the culture, high and low. I've lived here for over 15 years and I'm still discovering new things about it all the time. I'm a great CityUnspricted Local because no one else is as passionate about London as I am.
