About Me

I divided time growing up between California and England, and after traveling for 4 years and now being settled in Wales, I've learned that home really is where the heart is and the most important thing in life is relationships.
I am now married to a lovely Croatian man, so love spending time in Balkans with the other half of our family/friends and trying to learn the language. Igor is the perfect shy, deep, creative counter to my bubbly, sociable nature!


I live in Cardiff where I manage a yoga business and distribute health and wellness products. My life is invested in the mission of helping others, so I love teaching yoga, meditation, dance and generally sharing uplifting, grounded company and humour! I am vegan and into healthy lifestyle and natural therapies, though not fanatically so (anymore lol), so don't worry ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

I often listen to and participate in kirtan, a style of music meditation. I play around on the harmonium and sing, and try a bit of ukulele. Indra is a DJ so we always have a variety of music in our home and on our persons.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed 10km up a mountain... barefoot... in the dark!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm very chilled so will go with flow! I like being active but can occasionally sit still and watch a film, though I am more of a bookworm... I will happily share vegan cooking and other "unusual" consumables like kombucha and kefir, which I brew at home :)
