About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Mastering Italian and Xhosa in the two countries I love most

ABOUT ME

I love to laugh. I love exploring. I love coming up with exciting new ideas about just about anything. I love that feeling when you're floating in the ocean and your feet can't quite touch the bottom when the waves come and you feel very small.

I try to consciously let city-days be dictated by the earth not the city.

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't believe what your eyes are showing you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding and you will see the way to fly." Jonathan Livingston Seagull
