I'm currently Sydney based and lived in Australia all of my life. I love travelling, and have been slightly obsessed with Japan since fist going there about 5 years ago. Since then I have been to many places from big cities to small towns across Asia and Europe. In the words of Vince Clarke, I just can't get enough.
I work in policy, for a LGBTI health and HIV focused organisation, before that for a disability rights organisation. Social justice and human rights are important to me.
When at home I enjoy cooking, listening to music and hanging out with friends. I particularly like to cook for others.
I must admit that I am addicted to caffeine, but must source it from only the best espresso, cold drip or similar ways. Of the addictions to have, I think this is a good one. I'm not a smoker.
When travelling I'm open to many different things. I love wandering around and finding new and unexpected things. I love food, and am always interested in different types of food and different ways of making similar food.
I tend to read non-fiction, especially politics and history. American politics and Japanese history are two particular areas of interest.
I live with cats and have lived with dogs before, so I enjoy staying with animals.
