ABOUT ME

Some things I like are my cats, Enya and Kria, dogs, all animals basically, cubbys, op shops, lovely weather for tree climbing and bike rides with headphones on. I get too excited to sleep after I book a flight anywhere. Actually, more like shit scared.

Oh, and I also like things that aren't my cats, like anthropology, and using it as a lens through which I can view everyday life. A lot of things that most people wouldn't notice either fascinate or horrify me. I'm getting very interested in alternative modes of living (e.g. modern nomads, or autonomous communities) which is a big part of the reason I'll be going to Europe in June/July.

PHILOSOPHY

I want to go camping somewhere with two trees that are relatively close together, and put up a hammock between them. I also really want a rowboat and a puppy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Drove the entire length of the Great Ocean Road with my big brother Joe. We camped on the beach in a $10 tent. I was supposed to be at work the whole time. Also when we found Kria, our kitten. That was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I make vegetarian food. I am happy to cook for you. Also, I love to talk about nearly anything and everything. Abstract things, and important things. I will share my ideas with you, and I would love to know more about yours.
