“Who are we without dreams and passion? My aim is to live life to the fullest. I have found my element by working backstage for theatre and shows. It’s a life of experiencing, rather than owning anything. It’s immediate, vivid, full of uncertainties and surprises… and I treasure the expat life which inevitably results from all of it. In my free time, I travel even further, to see as much of the world and its diversity as possible. Then, in between, I sit down, breathe deeply, and write down whatever flows and grows from these experiences.”

Artwork.

Art in its many forms has always been an inextricable part of my life.

I can’t imagine a life without art – be it reading a book, going to an exhibition, watching ballet, dance, opera, theatre, a movie, or listening to music… Then there is the joy of writing, photographing, drawing, painting and sculpting the odd piece myself. My entire spirit lifts whenever I invest myself fully in these endeavours.
