About Me


learning everyday


Open minded and easy going, passionate, will try just about anything, adventurous, free-spirited.

I can be a bit of everything, love to party and clown around but other times love to curl up with a good book for hours or have a deep conversation with someone over a few quiet drinks :)


Live and let live, we're all on our own path and treat others as you wish to be treated. Peace, love and learning, living in harmony. Trying to be a better person everyday.
