As someone with a lust for life, I love embarking on journeys of discovery – be they geographical, mental, cultural, culinary or artistic. I am an avid fan of clever designs and love active holidays as they act as food for the soul. I am involved in women’s projects and believe it is crucial to think sustainably. I prefer to spend my spare time with friends and family eating good food or watching an inspiring film.
