Oliver was born and raised in London, but at the young age of 23, he packed his bags, his hopes, and his dreams and left for Paris. Here he acquired a rickety old bicycle, a cat, a few words of French, and a foolishly small kitchen. He also developed the skill of eating 90% of his meals in restaurants. Returning to his home city over a decade later, he took the role of editor of The Infatuation London where he dedicated four years to sharing this hard-learned skillset with a team of talented writers. He left the company in 2022 to complete the final stages of a five-year MSc programme, and to focus on his work as a psychotherapist.
