I write about time travel, enchanted muffins and epilepsy. Oh, and ballet.
Labels are a bit boring. They seem to be going through a Renaissance though. Ask me for mine if you like.
I work in a theatre doing publicity. This means I'm excellent at self-promotion. If you're reading my words and feel yourself falling for me quickly, now you can prevent it.
I spend a lot of my time creating new projects and experimenting with different ideas. I play music (you can hear a couple of recordings on www.goodchristiangirl.bandcamp.com), I write (currently obsessing over a novel for the past two years), and I try to surround myself with happy, refreshing personalities.
I'm a former American-person, having lived there (in homeschooled bliss) for eight years. You know how homeschoolers have a reputation for being slightly strange? I can vouch that it's not just a stereotype. But you know, it makes the world more interesting.
In some ways, I’m a complete cliché of the modern hipster, hippie, new-aged vegetarian scenester. But at least I know it, so that’s some small level of redemption. Except it's not, is it?
I genuinely enjoy meeting new people, especially when they’re passionate about life. People who go against the grain, or aren’t afraid to have a unique worldview are always a pleasure to meet.
I want to just exist in an honest and happy way, enjoying music, festivals, cafes, and random little arty events throughout the city. It’s always a pleasure to meet new people and see the world through a fresh pair of eyes.
I can also play a guitar song about any subject. This is often tested.

Six Feet Under. The West Wing. Breaking Bad. Frasier. Game of Thrones. Girls. The IT Crowd. Black Books. X-Files. The Daily Show.
My memory is so terrible when it comes to books. I love non-fiction - I've read everything Bill Bryson has ever done. Big Garth Ennis fan. Poetry. Random books on psychology, books I've bought after watching TED talks. Music books, autobiographies, political bits and pieces.
Impending sense of optimism
