About Me


Travel, study, learn, eat, experience and cross as many borders as I can while I can.


I am a firm believer in projecting positive energy.
I love nothing more than going out to shows or just listening to friends jam. Music is always better live. I'm crazy about food. Love to eat and cook for others and generally try to stay on the organic and local side of things. I'm always reading and have gotten back in to writing. Not a big fan of t.v. but I love old movies. I'm still trying to figure what I want out of life but for now I'm just happy to be along for the ride.

Oh and I'm dying to learn how to blow glass.


It's all about discovering your personal legend.


Living sustainably, music, dancing, ceramics, books, black holes, travel, space and time, the rain forest, linguistics.
