I love what I do.
I love my life.

I am obsessive.
I am an introvert.
I am nostalgia personified.

I love tea. I am a vegetarian.
I can’t be without my Kindle.

I am at peace when I can hear the water and feel the breeze.
My heart is at the Ocean. There, I stand at the edge with my toes in the water and blow a kiss to the Horizon along with my wishes and bury my deepest fears in the hot, hot sand.
I am socially awkward.
I love freedom and do not believe in social constructs.
I believe in balance, patience and what lies ahead.
I truly believe we are all in this journey together…
I believe in Nature
I love exploring the world with family and friends and making memories of a lifetime.


Matemwe Beach, Zanzibar, 2015-16

Life has been an incredible adventure for me and I am thankful for every tear and every laugh, every experience that has blinded me and each moment that has taken my breath away….
My family and friends are beautiful.

I have been given an amazing life and for that, everyday I try to be grateful.

I create from the heart.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
I dedicate my work to the enormity of life.
