I consider myself to be a bit of a free spirit, forever looking for the deep beauty in life (and sometimes being disappointed), always seeking to understand the world in its complexity, and convey my findings through story-telling and song (and a doctoral thesis!).
Music is my passion. I've been writing and playing music since my mid-teens and find it truly energising.
In the last 10 years I have lived in 15 different houses and had more than 30 different housemates. This might suggest that I am awful to live with, but I prefer to attribute this to my huge thirst for new experiences. I thrive on change and loathe complacency. I'm generally attracted to bright colours and shiny things.
I lived in Japan for a while, in a little town called Tamano on the outskirts of Okayama. I've also done a fair bit of travelling through other parts of Asia.
I oppose racism, sexism, homophobia, elitism, and anything else that leads one group of people to think that they are any better or any more entitled than any other group of people.
I am also a recovering chocoholic.
