I’m a twenty-something graphic designer living in NSW, Australia. I have two birds, am owned by one cat, and can frequently be found drawing on any available surface and/or pretending to be a mushroom. I have what my mother likes to call ‘resting nice face’, meaning that every time I leave the house, strangers think me kind enough to reveal their deepest darkest secrets, discuss their marital affairs or the status of their health. Despite my social anxiety, I live to hear the stories of others, and always try and learn something from each person I encounter. We’re all connected in this bizarre, terrifying bubble we call life, and for that I am grateful.
