About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find joy in average moments

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a small city in Western Australia and traveled in conjunction with competing figure skating to keep sane. Upon ending my career i left Australia with a mission to explore and discover. Since then I have found new passion and am still on the lookout for more! In the world...places, people and activity! I aim to living consciously, and compassionately with invested interest in sustainability. I enjoy adventures, slack lining, learning new skills and keeping active.

PHILOSOPHY

Success is:
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends.
To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

"If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religon and avoid the people, you might better stay at home"
