About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Backpacking South America

ABOUT ME

In 2013 I travelled through South America. I left my job and my life in South Africa behind for this grand adventure. Nature, culture, people, exploring, walking, seeing, doing, writing ... Fiercely independent.

Now I'm back in South Africa and working in Johannesburg. I find this new place very exciting, work is good, but I am working on a 2.5 year plan to do it all again somewhere else :-)

I pride myself on being laid back (if I was any more relaxed I'd be standing on my head) and having a good (great?!) sense of humour. I am open minded to the max.

I'm also a passionate marine conservationist - the long term plan is to get involved with oceans!

I love music, reading, dancing, the environment, movies, diving, walking and laughing.

PHILOSOPHY

Vivir tu verdad (Discipline is all, irreverence is key.)
