Official Bio

TLDR: Anna makes music, writes stories, and takes photos. Sometimes it gets a bit jumbled so it can be hard to know when one thing starts and another ends.

Travelling through space for several millennium, Anna Papij collected sound frequencies, stories, and photos, from across the galaxies. After crash landing on Earth, she salvaged these treasures, and now spends her time sprinkling them across the planet for other lost souls.


On Earth, Anna likes coffee and cats. She can sometimes be seen gazing at the sky searching for home.
