About Me

May 1st Update

New place to host, so exciting times are ahead!


Born & raised in New York City, the quote “The struggle is real” was my life. But after 6 years of various jobs & management roles, I quit my jobs, and university and moved to Australia. I now work full-time for myself planning and hosting events around Perth. It's what I do for a living and it’s my passion. It requires me to talk to hundreds of people a day, and as a result I'm a very outgoing and passionate person. Therefore, please only send me a request if you are a extrovert, like to meet new people and like going on adventures.

Pursuing my dream to be an international entrepreneur has put me on a journey with many unique situations. As a result I have became very open minded and understanding to all lifestyles that others choose to live. I am a very positive person, it is rare to see me upset, this is because I believe that if you smile at the world, it would smile back at you. I love to laugh and even when your jokes are not funny, I will laugh.

Below is a link to my page where you can see more about what I do and all upcoming events.
