About Me

i love to give/receive mail.

BS/MPH Gender Studies. D & I Consultant. Digital Marketing.

If my mailing address seems too simple to be in Norway, it's real :D


I would LOVE to swap Chai or Coffee- whole bean or ground. Please PM me so we can private swap!) I very much enjoy writing letters.I love postcards/random little notes in the mail as well.

I am looking to branch out with more swaps, groups, perhaps a serious pen pal, etc. I enjoy being crafty, doing zines, letters, anything else that requires postage.

I love tagging and graffiti. Any street art is good street art. Any art is good art. Any poetry is good poetry. On and On. The more we create the more we're connected and swap-bot facilitates our worlds' connectedness.

LOVE- COFFEE, MICROBREWS (BEER), SOJU, TEA, CHAI (homemade like my friend, Ganesh, from india taught me-best chai, ever!) oh and weed, but I already mentioned that!

about me...

i am a cancer survivor- from 12-15, I had a tumor in my left eye. Ultimately my left eye was removed and I now deal with/"diagnosed with" ptsd, anxiety, depression.

good websites

Write to LGBTQ inmates around the country, http://www.blackandpink.org.

Write a homeless friend, website was found on another profile I came across(http://www.swap-bot.com/user:bean) But I love this idea/concept/writing/IMPORTANT WORK! http://coyotecraft.com/2011/03/write-a-letter-to-a-homeless-friend/

Favorite Television

I like to watch TV whilst doing homework, house chores, creating, crafting, etc, etc, etc.

HUGE 30 ROCK fan, LOVE Arrested Development, I love rom coms (tacky ones too, sigh) and I love comedy. Love Curb Your Enthusiasm (OMG LARRY DAVID!)


i have lived in Incheon, Korea, Okinawa, Japan, Boise, Idaho, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Adelaide, Australia, & Oslo, Norway.

As such, I love ANYTHING to do with/related to these places. i'll love anything you'll send me. i'm pretty easy to please.


I am not interested in religious stuff, especially Christian stuff. So please be aware of that. I grew up in a Christian cult and try to steer clear now.

I don't really like licorice flavoring or "fruity" teas, but anything will be fine. I just love seeing happy mail!

I try to be positive and make your mailbox happy. Anything you send my way, will be welcomed and cared for!

I don't like when swappers have long dis-like lists. Allergies and sensitivities are different, but like... Really?

Comment: Thank you for your effort sending out this swap. It does not meet the swapping requirements,though, but I appreciate your swap.
Response: Hey there, I went through a rough time and disappeared, but I'm sure I sent something. I'm happy to resend (even 2-3 years late) again, sorry! DM you now. Update May 8th, 2021: Me again, I re-sent weeks ago and when I've been in touch, you say you're too ill to rate. Hope everything is OK... Would love just to make sure it has indeed gotten to you. Update May 21, 2021: I handcrafted and sent a make up, waited several weeks for reply and was told she didn't like it/it didn't meet requirements. Asked that I send another, but considering the time, the waiting, the cost of postage from Norway, I've decided that I spent the effort, time, consideration, and included something extra based on her profile, so I'm actually proud of this 3. I'll let it stand. I've been in touch with the swap host to engage in the conversation as to why I didn't meet the requirements. Pretty bummed about this, but seems bound to happen. May 23, 2021: Bro. I contacted the host of this swap and she agreed I should have been rated a 5. I hope ppl see this as a warning. #lame May 28, 2021: Swap host and I are contesting this rating.

I am just dropping in to leave you a message to brighten your day. Sun is shinning here. The warmth of it on my skin helps chase to blue away and make me smile. I can't wait for summer and to dive into the lake. I am so thankful for wonderful people like you who have helped me get through the Covid times and keep me smiling. Thank you for always being a great swap buddy and spreading joy. keep sparkling my friend. I will private message you on how to leave the images. Someone helped me when I started and I am blessed to pass help along.

Leave a nice message swap

image Hello Ellen, This is a great day! I'm going to be glad in it! The sun may come out, or not, Makes me no never mind. My rocking chair on my porch I will find. The birds will chirp their hello to me front across the neighborhood. That first sip of my coffe...aaah! Life is good & I am thankful for it. I hear a dog barking from across the way. I will dream of hearing the ocean waves crash to shore when I close my eyes. Then the duties of the day come crashing in. A lawn mower starts up and the illusion slips away. What's for supper tonight? Do I have appointments? Do I need a pedi? Do my windows really need to be cleaned? It was good while it lasted, but what really matters is my rocker is sitting there waiting for me any time I have a minute free. Stop to take a minute today, go to your quiet place, breathe in, breathe out, just be๐ŸŒป
