ABOUT ME

Well, I'm glad to be fully back in London, afer a year of being spreadeagled between Bristol and London. I was doing a practical sustainability course there which was bloody awesome!! Now I'm a farmer - well not quite I've got temporary employment on an urban community food growing project, which I'm hoping will lead to more interesting jobs! My profile below is a bit out of date but gives a general flavour! I discoverd the wonders of couch surfing while spending 2 years overseas.
If I can dance, dress up, eat tasty veggie food then I'm happy!
I'm friendly, smiley, open-minded, sometimes silly, sometimes serious.
I've had a great 18 plus months overseas - mostly in New Zealand and Australia. Last stop the USofA from West to east. I started my travels working in NZ and OZ and have spent the last 6 months WWOOFing (working on organic farms) in NZ - plus a bit of couch surfing & mini roadtrips!
In Sydney I got up to a variety of tricks.... a zombie lurch, dancing with the SNAG dance crew, dancing house & swing, going out partying, making video message for folks back home getting married, mad hatters tea party, trip up to byron bay, first surf lesson (was crap!), climate change demos,
In Melbourne (which i totally fell in love with) did some more of the same, and eating lots of tasty things, discovering quirky places, graffiti spotting, more performing, doing burlesque, acting and voice over courses! And spending time with my fabulous Melbourne friends!
In NZ i've been enjoying the great outdoors, learning a bit more about organics, biodynamics, permaculture and sustainable building. I'm going to cry when I leave.
