About Me


To give and recieve love, nurture Radically Honest relationships, visit and appreciate beautiful nature spaces


Last year was spent traveling and exploring our world mostly with an other, at times solo. At the moment, I am working full time, preparing to go back to school for Master's in Counselling Psychology. Woop wooooop! Though I am part of the 'work force' now I still want magical morsels of adventure and meaningful connections, here, there, everywhere!


See my mission :)

The Alchemist

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last year I spent over a month deep in the jungles of Bolivia working with jaguars and ocelots, befriending all creatures there! Noticing the subtle day to day changes of our jungle.

Before taking the jungle plunge, I hiked most of the National Israeli Trail with a dear friend. In the south, we spent almost 2 weeks hiking solo in the Negev desert, sleeping under the stars! The total disconnection from civilization, and completely tuning in with our environment was BLISS.
