A ‘flying Kiwi’, now living in London, I have lived all over the world, including Japan, Thailand, Italy, Australia and Israel.
Perhaps because New Zealand felt so far away, as a child, travel is what I always wanted to ‘do’. My dream was to dive into different the foods, rituals, teachings and philosophy of other cultures. To have experiences I could never hope for from the comfort of home. While I saved up, I earned a University degree in Comparative Religions and English Literature. That prepared me for my second love: writing. I became an energy worker and journalist of culture, lifestyle and travel. So travel not only grew my spirit; but I found my own gift as a storyteller along the way.
On the road I found inspirational people, exotic food and lifelong friends. In equal measure, poverty, injustice and pain. Life gives and life takes away, but it never stops teaching. The most important thing I learnt? Love is the strongest force in the Universe. (Humour is the second most powerful!) Love has the power to transform ordinary moment into something sacred by drawing alll of the distracted parts of ourselves back to this single moment.
As a Celebrant, I get to combine all of my favourite things: love, storytelling, culture, people and fun. It’s the best job on Earth.
