About Me


To meet interesting places and people, to make the world smaller, to live free and real


Me... well I'm 28yrs old, I'm passionate, I love art, I love life, i live for new experiences and exchanges. I'm a good person, fun, vibrant, carefree and easygoing whilst not lacking in substance (i hope!) I love a good conversation even if it's conflicting and I long for the experience of anything real- you can lure me to live music anyday!! As a traveller and a couch surfer my intention is to experience the world through local perspectives, through the everyday, i hope to capture at least some of the essence of what it means to belong to a particular place, wherever that is. For me it is a cultural exchange.
