I'm in Aotearoa/New Zealand
at the moment, currently
I've lived here for 9 months now, and have settled in to a good job
instructing Archery and laser Clay Bird Shooting at a
multi-activity vineyard, and also some casual work in the local
brewery. I also do gardening work from time to time, but I
generally don't work more than 20 hours per week. I think I've got
my work/life balance pretty much right.
I'm in NZ to take a break from the Environmental Activism
had been involved with a grassroots group in Tasmania
campaigning for the
immediate formal protection of the old growth and high conservation
value forests of the island, and an end to the woodchip and
corruption fueled destruction of some of the last wild free places
The conflict was a bit intense, I got to being really negative and
self destructive, but coming over here has really helped. I'm
living clean, eating well, and taking better care of myself.
I was honoured and privileged to be part of that campaign and have
been lucky enough to have spent time in these fantastic soul
centering places, but needed a break as the pain of watching
beautiful places destroyed was getting to me.
New Zealand has healed me. Being here, being welcomed into a loving
family, called onto the local Marae, being part of the community
here has cured me of most of my misanthropy and reinstilled a basic
hope in the creative problem solving capability of humanity working
together to achieve common goals.
I've cut my dreadlocks off, but kept my free spirit.
In a previous life (In Sydney, where I grew up) I studied Sociology
, and English
at Uni, I have a
keen interest in Human Rights
, and Social Justice
. I then went on to
spend five years working for a bank. I worked hard and travelled
all around the world on my holidays, but the work was not
satisfying and I knew something was not right. Leading me to "go
walkabout" and find myself in Tasmania defending forests.
I am an open and proud Poly. if you're unsure what that's about,
check out www.polyamory.org, google it or wikipedia it.
Also, I'm pansexual
not bisexual, and being
queer is part of my identity, whomever I am with.
I'm quite interested in fetish
, group sex and
But also in twosomes. you know, one on one sex! And also non sexual
relations! But I do enjoy meeting someone, and if there is a
chemical, emotional or spiritual connection, exploring it in
whatever way feels good safe and fun! I believe that sex is fun and
pleasure is good for you :)
My usual answer to a new suggestion is "why not?" Back in Australia
I frequented fetish clubs, and participated in the Sydney Gay
and Lesbian Mardi Gras
on the "PolyGlamorous" float. I went
over again this year and was part of the Mardi Gras again.
I enjoy good conversation
, but am not a fan of conflict
or arguing. I enjoy it when people can explore each others points
of view without personal attack.
I am a big fan of Marshall Rosenburgs "Non-Violent
" and I strive to maintain respect and compassion,
whomever I am talking to. And I have a need to be treated the same.
