MSc graduate in Environmental Science, specialising in natural resource management and urbanisation processes in developing countries. I am passionate about people and the natural environment and hope to always make a positive contribution to this field throughout my career. I live in Maryland USA and am originally from Namibia, but have also lived in South Africa and the UK. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to visit many countries ranging from southern Africa to north Africa, Indonesia, India and Europe. My favourite cities are Paris, Berlin and London, but Namibia is still my favourite country for its outstanding natural beauty. I have used all different styles of traveling - from backpacking to staying in nicer hotels. I love to get to know a place from a local perspective rather than just play the tourist and have great respect for personal space.
