About Me


To learn about who you are, so I can figure out who I am.


Hey there, I'm Jessica (or Jesse...or Jess, whichever you'd prefer).

I was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but have found an oddly wonderful connection with the UK. I will always love my city, but sometimes I'm not entirely sure it's where I belong. That's why travelling is so important to me.

In July 2011 I made the move to Cardiff, after having fallen in love with it over the course of two backpacking trips. Coming overseas to follow my childhood dream seems to have turned out alright though, and I loved studying and working in such a fine city.

Now I am living in London working in theatre, and looking to making some great memories in the Big Smog.

If asked, I'd describe myself as curious, friendly and gracious. I hope that other people see me as kind, unique and maybe even interesting. I am a bit of a busy bee, but am happy to get together for hot chocolate and a chat! I love to hear about other peoples adventures, and am glad to give advice if I can (Especially if you're going to Saskatoon, give me a shout, and I'll be more than happy to sing the praises of my homeland!)



I am because you are. Ubuntu made perfect sense to me the moment I came across it.


Travel: 25 countries and counting - I'll see the whole world some day, it's just going to take a little time.

Theatre: Too often people study a subject because they think it's safe, and they want to guaruntee themselves a job. While there's no shame in that, I decided to study a subject I really love.

Music: I love finding new music all of the time. I have lists of new artists to listen to, that I've gathered from people along my travels and in my day to day life. I play a couple of instruments not very well. The first song I ever learned to sing was "Dude Looks Like a Lady" by Aerosmith (I was three years old, my dad had a weird sense of humour).

Music, Movies, and Books

Gee whiz. I'll pretty well watch/read/listen to anything that's given to me. I'll take any chance I get to be exposed to new information and ideas. I suppose my favourite book is A Girl Named Disaster by Nancy Farmer, has been since I was 10. I've been making my way through the Dresden File series (at the recommendation of my fella), but switch it up sometimes with travel stories and historical fictions. I'm generally a bit obsessed with Joel Plaskett, Volcanoless in Canada, and the Hilltop Hoods song Nosebleed Section (it's just such a catchy jam!).
