About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Chilli Master

ABOUT ME

I've just got back from living and teaching in London for 2 years. I had the time of my life. Now I'm moving to Melbourne to try another city in Australia. Would love to meet people from all over the world here :)

I grew up in a small country town on a farm on the North West Coast of Tasmania surrounded by animals and nature. I will always go back to that, but I need to experience other countries and cities and ways of living first.

PHILOSOPHY

Live in the present and appreciate all the people in my life before, one day, closing my eyes forever.
