My self-summary
I've been living in London for nearly 10 years, with a few breaks, including a stay in Northern Sudan and two years in a small town in Northern Ghana. I was then supposed to move to Barcelona, but it wasn't quite right so came back here. I have crossed the river for the first time ever, and love it, it's like a whole other friendlier more chilled out world in the South. I live with my wonderful housemate and the world's most annoying cat.

I love 'a bit of culture' and enjoy the opportunity to expand my horizons from other peoples suggestions and experiences. Powerful (and what I believe to be important) ideology makes me cry. I appreciate passion in others.

I don't think that there is anything uninteresting, it is just that you don't know enough about it or understand it. I am truly passionate about the subjects and people that I care about, and am always up for a good 'discussion'
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a children's charity, doing direct work with vulnerable young people. Sometimes it can make things look like the world is stood on its head.

I am lucky enough to have friends across the world, which makes for great holidays. I just got back from Peru, where we trekked up to Machu Picchu with a baby (not mine!) strapped to our backs.

I have a wonderful urban family in London, who are incredibly important to me. Most of my family are farmers so I occasionally disappear off into the country, returning with milk and apples.
I’m really good at
travelling and getting on in very different places
being approachable
herding cows
The first things people usually notice about me
overuse of the word amazing
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anna Karenina, Chavs, Wuthering Heights, The Poisonwood Bible, How to be a woman, Identity and Violence, The Miracle of Mindfulness, If this is Man......

I have physiological reactions to films, and it takes me a while to communicate again following a good film, play, ballet, opera etc.

I'm rubbish at knowing about music, but know what I like and listen to a lot of Radio 6 and love Jarvis Cocker on a Sunday (or any day really)

On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think I have a typical Friday night. Could be pub, film, dancing, theatre, dinner, travelling out of London to see people. I'm not really a creature of habit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love to shake my booty at Caribsa class
