About Me

I am a practical person who takes life seriously and wants to do some good in this world that I feel so much a part of.
I am energetic and I love nature. I don't think I am all that open minded to start with, so I am striving towards more open mindedness and a better appreciation of the world. It is in my nature to try to be friendly.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't watch tv, like to read novels much or watch many films.
Music: I am very picky - generally light, soft, nature oriented, some classical/instrumental.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Barefoot hike on Crough Patrick mountain

Teach, Learn, Share

I am native English speaker, fluent French and I can teach people about plants, foraging, and even some computer programming.
I would like a chance to practice my French, learn some more Russian and learn more about plants at any occasion.

I love exploring nature areas - and it would be even better, sometimes, shared.
