About Me

I'm 36 years old and have a career in a very thinky and technical profession. I have a degree in English and Cultural Studies with five years of deep immersion in theatre.

I have a strong drive for social justice, am an outspoken feminist and am interested in a lot of social action work, from charitable giving to building houses, from microfinancing to soup kitchens and food banks. Having lived and worked abroad in developing countires I also have a strong interest in international aid and development.

I am very into games, especially roleplaying and board games. I play, and design them and am interested in game theory and it's applications/implications. I am also interested in solo games puzzles like suduku and crosswords.

I have a habit of throwing myself into new creative hobbies for the interest, mastery and heck of it. I came to drawing, leatherwork, masking, origami, papercraft and rubik's cubes this way. I thought swap-bot would provide interesting opportunities and new avenues for exploration.

Favorite Movies/TV:

  • Anything by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli
    • Almost anything by Shyamalan
    • Bring It On
    • Six Feet Under
    • So You Think You Can Dance
    • Survivor
    • Supernatural
    • The Tudors
    • Dexter
    • Battlestar Galactica
    • Dead Like Me
    • The Wire

Favorite Books

  • Foucault's Pendulum
    • Any early Jeanette Winterson novel
    • Toni Morrison's Bluest Eye, Beloved
    • Michael Chabon's Kavalier & Clay
    • The Secret Garden
    • Children's Lit

Things I REALLY Like:

  • Women in Aviation, especially anything Amelia Earheart
    • Creative acts that change the world
    • Roleplaying Games
    • Board Games
    • Cultural studies, sociolinguistics
    • Crafting
    • Terrariums
    • red pandas and platypodes (platypuses!)

Things I don't want in a swap:

  • (Not judging your likes/beliefs/fandoms, just not my thing so I don't want to receive things in these categories or to debate on these either....)
    • Harry Potter
    • Twillight or vampire stuff in general
    • Celebrity Gossip / Worship
    • Overtly religious Christian items (e.g. baby Jesus Christmas ornaments, angels, or cross stitched prayers are unwanted however ironic or design-intent motifs like the florid, extreme baroque, styles borrowed from Spanish Catholicism (e.g. bodega candles) would be OK)
      • prefer non-pastel colours


I am a good swap-bot citizen, and generally aim to send out my swap items within the first few days of assigning partners. If I were ever to be delayed, you would be contacted. So if the deadline is past due and I haven't contacted you, something has gone wrong in transit. Please message me before rating. I will do my best to make things right.

Also, I aim to rate everyone right away, but in case I have missed you, please feel free to nudge me in reminder.

I am very active on swap bot but not always very active in the forums due to time constraints. If you really need me, please PM me.

I give hearts for things I really love. Sometimes the heart is for the item itself, sometimes a thoughtful extra - but it's never just because there were extras in the package.

Dear spaceanddeath, I have been searching for such a website to exist, where all beings exchange something with one another in form of love. It seems we have a lot in common, and I just wanted to say hello and wish you a wonderful day. Many blessings
