Originally from New Zealand, moved here for new adventures. I'm looking to make some friends, and maybe find someone particularly special to help me get lost in the city.
I prefer geeks to princesses – unless you're Leia or Zelda, then we can discuss further.
I'm a journalist, photographer and designer – interested in this vast blue dot that we inhabit and all its mysteries.
An avid traveler who takes any opportunity to hop on a plane (or boat, or train) and saunter away into new situations. I also have an unhealthy, romantic view of the world.
If you're into good books (and a few cruddy ones too), great movies and awesome adventures, I think we might just get along.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a full-time job that I love, a passion for photography that's manifested itself into something quite serious (and akin to an addiction) and am saving up to travel the globe.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
A camera, a notebook for writing in, a full bookshelf, food because
my taste buds need friends, music for groovin' to, and good company
to share it all with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travelling and street photography. Or where I'll go next to
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing I'm doing every Friday night, trying to take over
the world! (Or if that falls through, go for an adventure with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The me I am today, is not the me I was yesterday. I'm ever
evolving, ever changing – the only certainty is that there is none.
I both love this and fear this about myself.
You should message me if
You can spell (it's sad that this is important), love adventures
and travel, and know a good Star Wars joke.
