I am a direct, outgoing and friendly person. I have an enthusiasm for people and travel. I like to drink lovely wine, eat great food and try new foodie things. I am happy spending time with my friends and can be found at my local cafe drinking good coffee catching up with people. My friends and family visit regularly from New Zealand and can testify that I am a great shopper and tour guide when and as required. I have a career in media and business consultancy, I love most types of music, old and classic movies and books that I can get lost in. Some of my best life experiences have been in Africa and Europe. For me, I believe that being authentic and having respect for oneself and others are important to help get you through life.
