I love travelling, nature, fresh air and meeting people!
My travels have taken me to the Pyramids and the Nile in Egypt, Robben Island in South Africa. Taj Mahal in India, Zanzibar & Mayotte Islands in the Indian Ocean, the Golden gate Bridge in San Fransisco and Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
I enjoy interacting with young creative entrepreneurs in my part time design consultancy work.
