Urban Woot is the gestating baby of Majella Greene (me), founder of www.guerrillahugs.com I was born in Paddington, London and grew up in north west London where I have remained, occasionally languishing, but primarily flourishing and evolving.

Cities vary, poverty sits side-by-side with multi-million pound apartments, thriving social housing communities exist next to gated communities where no one knows each other, cultures clash and mix, language evolves and new communities are born. I want to support people, communities and businesses to flourish by applying what I have learnt through my professional life (I am a qualified, registered social worker, I specialise in working with change and have a MSc in applied positive psychology), my personal life where I continue to discover new experiences in the city and the depth of my love for city life grows.
