About Me


Learn as much as I can while discovering the world


1 year ago I abruptly left university/job/home and fled the little islands of New Zealand. Since then I have been traveling about to the tunes of synth-pop and old jazz, learning languages, self sufficiency, and meeting lots of amazing people . Rad.


I love swing dancing, languages, activism, queers, and especially combining all that together
