Get to know the hosts!
Michelle - Oxford Speed Dating Host
Tell us about yourself!
By day I work in Publishing and by night I'm a speed dating host! I live in Oxford now but grew up Hawaii and love to travel whenever I can. I absolutely love horse riding, which I do most weekends and on a summer evening I be found paddle boarding on the rivers around Oxford.
What do you love most about hosting?
I love meeting the variety of people that come to our events. I'm happy when I can see are having a good night, or even better when they tell me so. Often people are a bit nervous at the beginning, especially if they have never been before. So it's great to see their confidence grow and that by the end of the night they have chatted to lots of people and leave the event feeling good and hopefully with some potential matches too!
My colleague at work recently told me that one of his flatmates met her boyfriend at one of the Oxford events and that was brilliant to hear.
How would your best friend describe you?
Fun hopefully! And up for new adventures. They would probably say that I'm always hungry too.
What makes you laugh?
My friends and old episodes of Frasier.
If you were given £1,000 tomorrow, what would you spend it on?
Probably a horse riding holiday somewhere warm.
When will we see you next!?
14th Feb - Valentines day! :D
