About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Create sitdances for people with dementia, and develop online sitdance training for aged care staff while travelling. From April 2017: Nepal, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Albania, macedonia, Serbia, Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, Scotland, England, Isle of Man, possibly also Canada, Spain and Morocco.

ABOUT ME
I am a creative soul, living as a digital nomad running my own business so I can live and travel anywhere.

PHILOSOPHY
Living in the moment, living and traveling light.
Feel rich (enriched) with the least amount of possessions.
We are all connected.
Some travel to learn about other cultures, only to learn about their own cultural conditioning instead.
