About Me




Greetings all, I figured i'd better update my profile as i'm off to discover another continent, been studying about africa for two semesters in germany and now I'm off to addis ababa to see for myself, will be there for six months at the university and am excited to say the least; have previously lived in new york, paris, rome, berlin, leipzig and have travelled a little further afield, am always keen to see new places and meet new people so if you're going to be passing through east africa give me a shout!
