Sam Gillies, the founder and editor of Best of Bristol. Purveyor of numerous Bristol posts, lists, stories, videos and Bristol photos. Having spent years in Bath looking enviously at how good Bristol was, I moved to Bristol in 2011 and consider myself a convert to a Bristol obsessive. Most likely found attempting to find interesting street art across Bristol and other cities.
