About Me


Maroc!!! ......tchuntchatcha


I enjoy meeting easygoing and open-minded people and trying to learn and grow from the experiences I have and people I meet. Writing about yourself is a licence to be obnoxious if ever there was one! Use false modesty? Or indulge in self importance along the lines of Where to start? It is impossible to describe myself.

I am 24 - and attempting to resist the less remarkable parts of adulthood. I have a penchant for the outlandish. I have lived in Spain, France, Brazil and the UK. I am very enthusiastic about Brazil! I have previously worked as an English teacher, and I hope to build a career in Human Rights. I have an insatiable, borderline manic thirst for exploring and searching out new truths...


Happiness = reality - expectations.

Self-creation as a life project.

Cultural Cannibalism

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Flirted with immortality... it wasn't for me.

Just ask! Teach English. Wants to learn more languages, photography, yoga, kung-fu and vastly improve snooker/poker skills. Share ideas and enthusiasm.
