About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to love,live and learn every day of my life

ABOUT ME

I am a very creative, energetic, friendly, open person. I grew up in France and moved over to Cambridge when I was 11, which I guess i consider my home.

I have done a bit of travelling in the past but living in New Zealand is definitely one of the most exciting things I have ever done!

I am a painter, photographer, writer, wanderer, daydreamer,and most of all I never give up!

PHILOSOPHY

life is too short to do things you don't want to do.
