.. My life has certainly been far from ordinary and has been a roller coaster ride from the day I was born… Growing up in Africa was probably the greatest gift I could have ever received and my life there was the most wonderful adventure! It opened my mind and taught me so much about what in life is truly important. It allowed me to look at the world from so many different angles and never once did i feel like i was getting caught up in the mundane…
Running through the tall grass at sunset in the Selous; catching catfish in the Mara River; Riding on the roof of a land cruiser with the wind blowing wildly through my hair and my pores filling up with the red soils of Tsavo… waking up in my tent in the middle of the night to watch elephants grazing under a full moon, huddled in a warm Maasai blanket… running on coral reefs barefoot and forever making new discoveries in the same pool, no matter how many times I went back to visit it…
Getting dressed up in an evening gown to go to the ballet or an opera; afternoon tea and cookies in the garden with my mother; having Beluga caviar for the first time at age 6 and LOVING it!; Spending hours and days in a hot kitchen helping my mother prepare a 10 course meal for 50 guests; The smell of the grass and the earth when the skies open up during a rain fall…looking out at the horizon and seeing storms being formed hundreds of miles away….
Africa made me who i am… someone that easily blends in an adapts to all situations, because this is what the dark continent requires of you….
I have always had an affinity for art and photography and I love to explore it in all it’s mediums, pushing myself to the limits in an effort to get my mind, my passions and my hands to work together in beautiful unison.
