About Me


Time to mix it up a little


I like to try and keep things simple but that is often harder than in seems. I spend time growing food when I can and eating with friends. I have learnt that music sounds better outdoors and I believe that you can learn something from everyone.


I can learn something from everyone and I try to stay conscious that my perspectives may be mistaken.


Music, dancing, growing food, rock climbing, mountain biking, sharing food and thoughts.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite director is Emir Kusturica and enjoy films that are quirky and silly like Micmacs à tire-larigot. I like the kind of music that makes your body jump up and throw you around in silly ways with beeps and whirrs- or anything that is played live. The morning is for reggae, then anything goes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I stayed with a Monk near a small village in Northern Thailand. I slept in a bamboo hut with the evening sky deep red from the forests nearby being burnt back. In the day I learnt how to build mud brick houses and grow veges.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like encouraging people to ride bikes more. I can teach you how to rock climb too.
