Hey, I’m Melissa!

I am an adaptable, multilingual world citizen (I feel at home in Kenya, the Netherlands, England, South Africa, and the USA), an animal lover (I have 2 dogs and 6 cats in Kenya) who loves traveling. I live in Nairobi, where I work from home as a high-end portrait photographer. I also shoot weddings, at home and abroad.

I mainly focus on my photography, but my huge passion is songwriting. I am a night-owl, but because I am used to living with light sleepers, you will never hear me late at night!

I often say I am a sensual person, in the sense that I love everything that appeals to the senses. I adore the crafts of perfume, films, music, food, and dancing. I am a bit of a geek, love reading, and am a total sponge when it comes to learning about things I am passionate about (recently, my attention has been focused on freerunning and rally driving!!). I blame my parents for my slightly weird sense of humour, and Disney's Fantasia for my daydreaming habits.

I have been called an "introvert with highly developed social skills", and so, although I love my space, I definitely enjoy learning from people through social interaction. I look forward to meeting lots of new people.
