Once upon a time there was a girl who saw the world differently to other people. This is the story of that girl in words, photographs and a bit of dark humour. All images and opinions are my own unless otherwise stated. If you’re easily offended or see the world in black and white, then you’re almost definitely in the wrong place.

But who is that girl?

I’m a fairly atypical web geek living in Nottingham, England with my long-suffering boyfriend and five kooky cats. I’m short, a mix of Russian, Iranian, English and French, and you can win me over immediately with any kind of cake. Other weaknesses include Mad Men, Nintendo, CSI, fro-yo, Italy, sunny days, diet Pepsi, The Legend of Zelda, pretty dresses, photography, Phineas and Ferb, baking, domain names, reading, tilt-shift, bad TV, and murder mysteries in any form (not necessarily in that order).


I’ve been blogging since 2001, when I started an HTML help website, blog and forum which was pretty well known back in the day (it resulted in a stalker who was later featured on Good Morning America for his internet stalking antics, but that’s another story). This website has gone through a million different changes and names, which is kind of a reflection of the way my life, attitudes and thoughts have evolved over the years.

At Nottingham Luminarium I love technology, particularly anything web-related. You’ll know if there’s a problem with the internet if you’re near me because you’ll hear persistent whining and complaining followed by empty threats. I have a MacBook Pro, Samsung Galaxy K Zoom, a Wii U, 3DS, and a Nikon D3100, and I love them all to death.

By day, I manage social media and create content for a rather big web hosting company. By night I work on my own websites and projects, analyse and report on people’s SEO, plan marketing campaigns, come up with ideas, and generally help people with their businesses.

You can find me at a lot of UK web industry events, from local grassroots to international conferences covering a wide range of topics. For more details, check out my Lanyrd profile. For more photos, try Flickr or Instagram.
