About Me


Feel the fear. And then do it anyway.


I am impulsive. I like to experience new things and mostly new places. I love meeting people from different places and learning about their experiences and their lives
I want to see everything and do everything and take pictures of it all!
I was born in Zimbabwe and raised in South Africa in KwaZuluNatal and then the Western Cape. Since leaving high school I have been moving around a lot and I have been lucky enough to live and travel in Australia and Asia and now North America.


I believe in karma. I believe that you should treat everybody that you meet with respect and kindness because you have no idea what they are going through in their lives. I try to live in the moment and take each opportunity as it comes my way. Take nothing for granted and enjoy everything.

My favourite books at the moment are the George RR Martin series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' (Hurry up and finish the next one!)
I like scary movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A couple of months ago I traveled to Zimbabwe to visit family who live there. We went on a trip to Mana Pools which must be one of the last truly wild places left in this world. We camped on the banks of the Zambezi river and went to sleep with the sounds of hippos and hyenas and honey badges and buffalo and lord alone knows what else surrounding us. We woke up to orange skies and elephants and crocodiles on our 'doorstep'. It was truly amazing and one of the best trips i've ever had the privilege to take.
