About Me

I work part time in fresh produce at a local, organic, ethical food and health product store, and do a bit of work as a freelance personal assistant on the side.

Came from a military family, grew up all over the world, and went to university in Dallas, Texas. Moved back to the UK about four years ago, now call Bristol 'home' but still love to travel.

I enjoy DIY, medieval and self-sufficiency crafts, the results of which I love to share with my hosts and guests when I can!

"There are no strangers - only friends I haven't met yet."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got to see an African sunset over the Atlantic from the top of Table Mountain, and watch the moon rise on the other side of the sky five minutes later, all in the presence of my True Love.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a public speaker/educator on gender/sexuality, so maybe you can finally ask all those "inappropriate questions" you ever wanted to ask about lesbian/gay/trans/queer people.

I also know some interesting things about medieval history and handicrafts. I could talk about falconry and brewing all day long.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories, mead, charm.
