Billie JD Porter
26 year-old London girl, Billie JD Porter has already amassed an impressive career online, in print and on television.She left her mark on NME, Vice and Dazed and Confused with her wry interview style and immersive approach, often turning up for a 10 minute Q+A with a band, and ending up spending weeks on the road.

French style bible Jalouse have since made her a regular face in the magazine, thrusting her into the world of modeling where she has since posed for the likes of Louis Vuitton and Levi's. A regular DJ and attendee of fashion events, Billie is known for her unique sense of style. As a talented film maker, Billie has directed and presented documentaries for Vice and was the star of Channel 4's hit show "The Joy Of Teen Sex", acting as a roving reporter.
 
Billie also co-presented the channel 4 music special, 'Smells Like Friday Night' interviewing the likes of Pharrell and Mike Skinner. Most recently Billie has been travelling across the globe authoring documentaries for BBC3 such as 'Prostitution What's the Harm?' and 3 part series 'Secrets of South America' and 'Secrets of China', as well as starring in the Channel 4 mini doc special 'World Of Weird'.
 
Wrath - What makes you angry about theáhospitalityáindustry?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
The soullessness of most hotels, and the prices they are still willing to charge for rooms. Its such a treat to stay in a place where there's attention to detail, and something unique to remind you where you are.
 
Greed - If all your travel fantasies came true where would we find you?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
Probably on a road trip through the U.S, not that I can drive. I've visited some incredible places around the world but so far as America I've mainly just done LA and NY. There's so much more I want to see and do out there.
 
Sloth - What do you do to unwind?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
I find it incredibly difficult to relax, I always have. Bubble baths, as much as I love them, just don't really do it for me. The only thing that really makes my mind stop ticking over is exercise or massage.
 
Pride - What are you most proud of?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
Having chased a dream to be able to travel and see the world with my work, and having done it all alone. Of all my different work projects over the years that I'm also hugely proud of, mastering my own independence is what I think really feels like most of an achievement.
 
Lust - Is there anything that you are still lusting to achieve?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
So many things! I've books to write and feature length documentaries itching to escape my brain. I finally feel like I'm ready to bring those things to life though.
 
Envy - who are you most envious of?
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
I tend to be jealous of people with crazy money; obviously this is completely stupid and unfair because you can't help where you come from, but sometimes I feel like I could create the most awesome stuff if I could afford to use my own money to fund it. Obviously there are so many amazing ways to raise cash for creative projects these days, but I think that with any outside investment, your freedom is somewhat limited.
 
Gluttony - have you ever over indulged?á
Billie JD Porter Seven Sins
I have, on regular occasions, sat and consumed an entire mini bars worth of food and drink on arrival. I think travel makes me more hungry than anything else.
