Jade Macbeth

Though it might not love her back, this sun-loving North-sider is dreaming of plane hair, jet lag and delayed flights while passing her time boogieing the night away at live gigs, tucked away with a good book, binging the same four shows on Netflix and finding whatever body of water she can to keep the summer heat at bay! She keeps her ears open for the stories that connect us, with a keen interest in all of the wacky, wonderful things that make us human.
