Hi, I was born in London, carry a NZ backpack and an Australian drivers' licence so I'm a real colonial commoner!
Currently working as an English teacher in Brighton, UK, I was working as a conversation assistant in a small primary school in Seville, Spain up to May 2019. Still working on building my English teaching skills. And my Spanish. And writing.
As well as theatre and literature, I love walking. I walked the Camino del Norte y Primitivo June/July of 2016. Sauntering through rural Spain, the coast and the mountains, was an unforgettable experience.
In the summer of 2017 I worked for four separate WorkAway hosts in the North of France. All were in seventeenth century farmhouses in various states of renovation. I gardened, painted, and prepared furniture for upholstery, cooked, helped with pottery and I cleaned! I was so lucky with my generous hosts I was able to see a lot of the country. In the summer of 2018 I worked in the south of England, in Devon and Wiltshire before heading to Brighton to teach English. On my way back to Spain I called in to Antwerp, Belgium and worked in a vegan restaurant for a couple of weeks.
I returned to the UK again this summer in June 2019 and went straight to work in Devon, helping with an exciting eco-project.
I'm keen to get back into a productive garden; really missing my herbs. I'm very much looking forward to meeting thoughtful, creative people and helping out as much as I can.
What can I do for you?

Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project

Primarily a writer, I have a master degree in media and communications, which kind of sums up my life. I specialise in communication using words, pictures, videos, theatre, puppets ... (Though probably more dilettante than master if truth be told!) I've worked as a script editor/storyliner in tv soaps and I've been a puppeteer/performer in theatre-in-education.
As well as tv and theatre I've worked in admin and kitchens, gardens and schools! I can tell most edible plants from their less tasty cousins and I'm well-versed in daily cooking. I'm fond of absorbing tasks such as painting or making things and I love getting my hands dirty.
Also, current Australian Working With Children's Card and Spanish Crime Check Certificate.
