I’m a 20-something year old Canuk, currently living in Bournemouth with my eloquent heart-snatcher of a husband, Thomas. We have a cuddly little house cat named Avery, a stray who we’d like to think we saved from a pretty harsh street life back in Toronto (to be honest, he probably would have been fine without us, but we were just too smitten not to take him in). Brought him with us when we came to Bournemouth early 2016, so now he’s a Canadian cat living abroad in the UK!
I currently work on a variety of online projects, about half of which are run as joint ventures between Thomas and myself.
Our primary focus over the past few years, and thus what we’re best known online for, has been on the development of our survival and preparedness blog, More Than Just Surviving, which Thomas and I co-author, and I photograph for. In the past year or so, we’ve also been fortunate enough with time to turn some of our attention toward our personal blog, Elise & Thomas, which, while technically an older blog than More Than Just Surviving, was more of a breeding ground for cricket noises than anything else until the end of 2015.
Late 2016, I started my own cat blog, KittyClysm, that concentrates on pet care, kitty product reviews, and training advice. Not my first pet blog since I started one on ball pythons (My Pet Python) in 2012 that I later abandoned due to Thomas and I having to re-home our pet.
Being a compulsive starter, I’m sure I’m not done with new projects yet. Check back every once in a while if you’re interested in seeing what new projects I’ve got in the kiln.
