The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
— Marcel Proust
 

Photography and design have always been a means to process and reflect upon what I see and feel. As mediums, they help me to immerse with my surrounding environment, and connect with the people and places that cross my path. Over the years, I have learned that more often then not, the most special moments are the ones where in fact I don't have that camera on hand. It's a fine line between being present and capturing the presence of Life's magic. 

I believe that as humans we are all curiously creative, and the act of capturing moments was just the beginning of my journey as an artist. Photography taught me self-awareness. It taught me to be mindful of my perspective, respectful of others and it gave me a keen eye for observation. Those skills have manifested for me as a designer, entrepreneur, creative director, and naturalist.

I have been traveling throughout Africa since I was 18 years old. More then anywhere else on the planet, it holds a kinetic energy for me. I am drawn to it on a molecular level. In the summer of 2015, whist on a spiritual walkabout in South Africa, it hit me that in order to be "creative" from a lifestyle perspective, one has to surround themselves in spaces that stimulate creative thinking.  For me, that has always been Nature. Nature is the key to a creative life.
