About Me


I want to live life with no regrets


I have never been able to stay in one city for too long-something I call the gypsy itch. For the first time in a long time- I don't know what the future holds and I'm so excited.
I grew up in Calgary I went to University in Victoria and then after that I started to move. I moved back to Calgary for a year to Montreal for a year and I have been living in Vancouver for three years- which feels like a lifetime... Since I graduated high school I have been dreaming of travelling through Europe now I'm making it a reality. My current plan is to live in London for a few months and then take off on a bike trip and see where I end up.


I believe in living life to the fullest every day. My biggest worry is that I will wake up one day and regret that I didn't do everything that I wanted to do or see everything that I wanted to see. You never know when shit is going to hit the fan...


I love cycling especially bombing down hills! I am a creative person I love anything crafty I am constantly looking to develop new skills as an artist. I have recently been teaching myself about fabric dying as well as trying to sew clothes for myself. I love going to art galleries, listening to records, drinking as much coffee as possible and just relaxing in the sun. Although I live in Vancouver the land of eternal rain- so having sun is a treat.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love musicals- I'd call it a guilty pleasure- but the truth is I just don't feel guilty about it. I love everything from Jesus Christ Superstar- a must see in my opinion to 9 to 5. I haven't done any reading in awhile- but two of my favorite authors are John Irving and Tom Robbins- and one of my favorite books is "In the skin of a lion". Music- I can appreciate just about anything, some of my faves are: Broken Social Scene, Coco Rosie, Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to do a firewalk- it was one of the most beautiful and empowering things I have experienced.
