live, love and learn
I am a wandering wonderer.
Currently based in Melbourne as I am about to embark on a journey making shoes! Cobbler aye? I love adventures, musical and creative jams and generally cobbling things together from found objects.
I live to learn and learn to live along the way.
I live a simple life, I prefer not to have too many unnecessary things which I do not need. I am not a very existential person, simple beautiful things in life make me smile.. like a blooming flower or random acts of kindness.
Also.. Take the stairs! :)
