I live in Nelson, New Zealand, with my partner Tim and Cobweb our cat.
I love to read and talk about books.
I travel a lot and base many trips on wildlife viewing opportunities. I have travelled to see wolves and other wild dogs, lions and leopards, and recently spent some time in Uganda volunteering at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. This is my best girl Medina:
Tim and I returned to Uganda in 2018 and I am currently working on an MA, soon on a PHD, on Immanuel Kant and chimpanzees.
The country Tim and I have visited most often is Japan; 日本で私の心.にすんでいます.
I study Shakuhachi and Japanese and this is one of my favourite はいく：
としどしや year after year
さるにきせたる on the monkey’s face
さるのめん a monkey’s mask
