Screenwriter, amateur home chef, night owl. A woman of many ephemeral hobbies and a soft spot for inexpensive travels.

Past and present jobs include English teacher, bartender, restaurant kitchen staff and Producer for animation and VFX, in no particular order. 

From Patagonia, Argentina and living in Japan since May 2018. Can’t say ramen has nothing to do with why I’m here.
