ABOUT ME

I'm the kinda gal that is easy to get along with, i find it easy to talk to people, if i go to a party i will usually meet everyone at the party and make friends, even if just for the night, i love making connections!
I enjoy a good conversation, a singalong with friends or strangers, a cold beer and a night out dancing, amongst many other things.
I'm a musician, social worker and a grassroots community activist.
I love people, meeting them, getting to know them and becoming great friends!

PHILOSOPHY

My personal philosophy is to live authentically and honestly and to love and care for oneself and others!
