About Me


Connect and Inspire


I am fun loving with lots of positive energy. I love to travel as I get to connect with people. I believe that anything is possible.


Anything is possible


I have a beautiful 14 month old daughter. She takes up lots of my time, but it is absolutely worth it. I enjoy surfing, playing soccer, going to music concerts, business and spending time with friends. I am very close to my family, we all still live in the same city.
I have done a lot of travelling which I can recommend to everyone as it has helped me to understand people better.

I have been diving off the Aliwal Shoal near Durban, South Africa - with lovely big sharks and Surfing at J-BAy in some of the best surf in the world.
