About Me

Hello!

I like being spontaneous and am always up for any kind of adventure.

I like being in the outdoors, dancing, dressing up, circus, cooking (love), art, politics, music, learning everything and anything there is to learn and generally making people happy and having lots of fun. I enjoy working in the music scene; organizing events/gigs designing posters and flyers etc. I run a music night every few months called The Roly Poly Dress Up Club in the centre of Bristol (check it out here https://www.facebook.com/TheRolyPolyDressUpClub?fref=ts)

I also want to be a Journalistic Photographer (although practice all areas of Photography) and installation/interactive Artist.
