I would say I'm a pretty regular kinda girl, very easy going, and
not particularly serious (unless it really really matters). My
sense of humour is on the sarcastic side, and i'm not easily
offended. That will do for now...capturing the essence of my
personality in just a few paragraphs is just too challenging. I
also find dragged out online communciations tedious, much prefer to

What I’m doing with my life
I'm a corporate fundraiser, which I enjoy, although I am definitely
a work-to-live type. I love my friends, am pretty happy with my

exhibitions, getting out of the city and going somewhere new.
A few of my favourite things... London walks, sports, gin and

like...pretentiousness, fussy eaters, snobs, bad customer service
and the theatre.
