About Me

Hello! I am a Canadian teacher/tree planter/traveler currently living in Rome working on my masters in Art History. 👋

I have always been a traveler.
Before I was able to buy plane tickets, I would ride my bike to the farthest reaches of Toronto, always wanting to see what was around the next corner. At 18, I signed up for a volunteer program that sent me to a small village in Ukraine for 6 months. In the decade since I have lived/worked/studied/traveled all over Canada, backpacked across west Africa, lived and worked in Southern France and most recently moved to Rome.

I am perpetually in motion. Wherever I am in the world, you are likely to catch me hiking, cycling, dancing or running. In more still moments I love yoga, reading, watching films and cooking.

I am interested in meeting people, sharing experiences and exchanging stories/perspectives.
