About Me

CURRENT MISSION

The world is my oyster, and I'm going to slip and slide all over the place till I've found my pearl.

ABOUT ME

I love to travel - there's something special about exploring 'new frontiers' and encountering foreign ideas and things, forcing you to broaden your mind so that it can embrace all that such experiences proves to exist.
On the same note - my passion is social justice. It's a calling that's long been hollering, and for this reason, I strive to understand and challenge social diversity issues.
I'm vegetarian. And a Scorpio.
Plus, I love chocolate. And pizza, with lemon pepper.

PHILOSOPHY

Say what you mean, mean what you say, or shut the hell up.

We can't control what happens, only how we react.

At the end of the day, we're all equals in our hearts.

The only path to peace is peaceful.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I studied Social Work in India, with a focus on homosexuality. It was the most intense and eye-opening experience I may ever have.

Teach, Learn, Share

I was certified in Ayurvedic Head & Shoulder (Sitting) Massage when I lived in London, and still practise informally on family and friends. And, I twirl poi (Maori tradition of spinning balls on strings) - I can twirl fire, LED Glow, ribbon, and sock. And, I am an artist. I can help with any graphic design, or video or Flash anime production. ... If any of that happens to pertain to you!!
