About Me


I try to be easy-going. I used to be a stress-pot but gave it all up for the bottle.. joking :)

Sometimes I'm zen, sometimes I'm driven. I get turned on by amazing art. I'm passionate about life, this crazy journey of self-discovery that we're all on.

I'm a traveller. I live for the sun, mountains, snow or the ocean. If I'm in the elements, then I'm in my element.

I'm a foodie, I love my kitchen. If I'm cooking for friends, I'm happy. If we have a bottle of whisky also, I'm in heaven ;)

I take care of myself and my friends around me, I'm true to myself and believe in good karma.

Slowly but surely I'll make sure each step is a step forward. I'll figure it out.

That's my philosophy 101!
