About Me

Originally from Liverpool but just now working in academic publishing for a scientific journal in London. Spent ten months studying Applied Ethics in Sweden and the previous year teaching English in Taiwan. Recently been traveling across India, as well as Philippines, Nepal, Thailand and Myanmar .

Have been trying to learn Spanish and also Swedish... but alas with limited success! Spanish - A2/B1 and Swedish - A2 level. Currently hugely interested in learning Sanskrit - both written and verbal.

Deja el pasado atrás y disfruta el presente :)
