To go out and see the world, discover life and myself
Hi guys! I'm an outgoing, chilled person who's up for new experiences and making the most of life. I'm really easy to get along with, very sociable (love gigging, clubbing, cinema, bars etc.) and am into swimming, running and other sports. As a linguist I'm also interested in languages, having worked as a translator and currently in project management. Up for parties, new experiences, and good times! :)
Make every second count. Can't say I've always lived this philosophy as much as I'd like to but am certainly trying to follow this now!
