About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get out in the world and meet awesome people and see beautiful things

ABOUT ME

I Enjoy hanging out in coffee shops and pubs with friends and debating and chatting away about anything and everything. I love to meet new people and learn about their experiences and discovering new perspectives.
Having worked some crappy jobs the last few years, I'm looking to take off and travel for a while before figuring out what to do with myself!
I play roller derby for a great team in Cardiff and like to stay as active as possible. I also have a go at freestyle football.
Went on a great trip last year to some cities in the US and Canada and stayed with some awesome hosts. Hoping to see more of Europe with Berlin high on my list and Scandinavia also.

Some favourite things:
Cake. Paint. Pens. Cafes. Feminism. A good debate. Getting up with the sun in the summer. Exercising in the rain and mud. Climbing trees. Swimming in the ocean. Art. Sprinting with music blasting in my ears. Sketchbooks. Trying to do handstands. Contact sports. Jumping over and off stuff. Taking photos. Doodling with music blasting in my ears.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Loved cycling over the golden gate bridge. Wondering around central park early on a clear morning. Hiking in the Hollywood hills and skidding my way down the side of a hill and encountering some awesome wildlife. Checking out the redwoods...

I like to do a bit of freestyle football but kind of just make it up as I go a long but could teach a few tricks.
