My Goal

I do NOT seek to create an absolutely quiet world.

However, I want to see a world where quiet is a regular part of life and where it is possible to live a peaceful life without constant intrusion of machine noise and artificial stimuli.

My goals include the elimination of noise sources by teaching people how to soundproof various environmental sounds in their homes and elsewhere.

My Story

airport staff worker noisy sounds

I was an Airport ground staff for around 6 years. Workers who direct jet engines in landing are constantly subjected to high levels of noise. Over the years, I started experiencing partial hearing loss.

Since I wore a hearing aid, it wasn’t much of a problem for me.

…Until I got pregnant, and thought:

What if I don’t hear the baby crying?

This is when I and my husband looked into ways to soundproof our apartment.

After spending a lot of time, energy, and money in trying various soundproofing methods I started educating my family and friends about it.

 That’s when I decided to start this blog because I wanted to curate the best resources for people looking to get rid of various environmental noises—enabling them to live a peaceful and quieter life.
