About Me


make art & read books


I love art, design, music, literature.. I am addicted to pretty blogs and the smell of magazines. I have a tattoo addiction. I read books a lot and am constantly perusing the shelves of dusty used book stores on the hunt for something special.

I lived in Portland, Oregon for a year and am trying hard to get back!


Say what you need to say and do what you need to do. Be a good person and stop complaining.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I make connections with lovely new people and rave about how great couch surfing is to people who haven't tried it yet


I've stayed with plenty of lovely American folks.


nice people art blogs craft books music singing sewing tattoos tea coffee wine sitcoms documentaries photography thrifting (op-shopping!) winter typewriters and sewing machines bookshops open late art galleries riding bikes sitting in parks board game drinking parties are also great.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Meeting strangers and inviting them all back to our place in Portland, followed by an impromptu 90's sing a long and all night party.. oddly comforting and thrilling at the same time.
