About Me


Wake up and smell the metaphorical coffee.

"This is about M.E.! My enjoyment!"
No but seriously, what I do is play flute, write, compose music, and dream of ways to make it big and quit my day job. I love speaking French and listening to Hungarian. I love comedy so much, when I hear something funny it ricochets around in my body and I end up laughing for a long time, just to make sure it's all been processed properly. Wouldn't want to get an injury .

I'm a feminist! That means I believe in love, respect, and human rights.
For everyone.

And I am living in Budapest for now, just trying to accomplish as many creative projects as I can. I love collaborating with other artists!


C'est pas grave.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I moved to Budapest after graduating from the UofO. So, I go to couchsurfing hangouts sometimes. Possibly I will have a couch soon.


Once, near Paris! It was incredible, and the family was so hospitable. Definitely a good introductory experience.


Comedy, crêpes, music, fiction, what is time and space?

Music, Movies, and Books

I studied music at university so I'm quite partial to "classical" music.
As far as pop music goes....Regina Spektor, Anne Weiss, Mumford and Sons, Beirut, Jackson Browne, Neil Young, techno music, that one song "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" which is hilarious and fun to dance to...

Books. Yes please. Novels, anything funny or insightful... The Unbearable Lightness of Being was quite interesting. I just finished the Inextinguishable Symphony, which was good...Harry Potter, of course. No question.

I love action/adventure/comedy movies. I love Dan in Real Life, with Steve Carrell, where it's like a series of awkward moments that are hilarious.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm working on it.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hey I can teach you some French or English or the 20 things in Hungarian that I know how to say. I can teach you stuff about music -some theory, how to read notes, etc. I can make your dog Sit! in any language.

I can make crêpes, banana bread, and all kinds of baked goods, as well as a delicious chicken dinner or grilled cheese or whatever!
