About Tremayne Carew Pole

Founder and Publisher of Hg2 | A Hedonist's Guide To... (www.hg2.com), Tremayne never quite found his niche and tried everything from estate agency and headhunting to specialising in Richard & Judy and travelling extensively. He loves Africa (there is nowhere else on earth that makes you feel more alive - the red dirt, the expansive skies and the warmth of the sun), difficult places, interesting people, John Varvatos, strong coffee for breakfast and underground parties, but loathes queuing, insomnia and restaurants with photos on the menus. What makes him a hedonist? "A total disregard for my own wellbeing, an inexhaustible approach to nightlife, not knowing when to say no and being the last man standing."
