About Me

I'm a pretty open minded human who loves meeting new humans and trying new things.
I am most content when I am outdoors in nature or when I am fully absorbed in a creative pursuit such as painting.

I work for an environmental organisation teaching school students about sustainability and conservation. I work as a visual artist on the side for fun :-)

I have always been fascinated with cultures that are polar opposite to my own, and I am eager to travel more and learn about the world and its people.

My fondness travel experience so far was the time I spent travelling through Southern Africa a few years ago.
I spent some time volunteering at an animal sanctuary with cheetahs, leopards, lions, baboons etc. This had been my dream for as long as I can remember. There's a sense of mystique and beauty about Africa that really gets into your soul.

More about me:

I enjoy spending time with creative, artistic, passionate and thoughtful people.
