I am an avid traveler and love meeting people who are interested in the world and open to being in new environments. Some might call me a bit of a foodie as I really love cooking and trying new dishes, especially those that involve olive oil, raisins and garlic! Besides cooking, I enjoy running, yoga, dance, doing creative projects and writing.

I work as a freelance writer and photographer and love discovering the hidden joys of everyday life. I tend to have a anthropological focus to my work and recently have been particularly focused on sustainable design and local sourcing. I love sharing my findings with guests so they can experience some of the lesser-known sides of the city!

My housemate, Kes, is also a foodie, runner, traveler and fashionista. She is deeply involved in the world of ethical fashion, likes meeting well-traveled individuals and knows the ins regarding many local fashion designers working in the sustainable realm. As our friendship began in Madrid where we were both living and working, we speak fluent Spanish and love using it whenever possible!
