I have a deep passion for travelling and exploring cross-cultural connections – my curiosity has taken me to more than 50 countries, to stately capitals, bustling market towns, sleepy villages; down back alleys, into old bookstores, small local school rooms, strangers’ homes…
I have led and participated in community development projects in Timor Leste, the Philippines, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Pakistan, Tanzania, and raised funds for charities and causes in different countries.
And everywhere I have been, the hopes and sighs of humanity are the same; there is the same search for meaning and purpose in every pair of eyes I’ve met. I cherish both the deep, meaningful conversations and the nuanced gestures that often speak louder than any language.
My desire to explore has also been turned inward to my own ability. I have run marathons and ultramarathons in every continent (less Antarctica! though that’s on the list), across mountain trails and deserts, and I have hiked the tallest peaks in many countries.
Not one to shy away from challenges, I found that pushing such physical and mental boundaries have developed in me a quiet strength that I return to when things get rough even in the day-to-day.
My travels and adventures have taken me around the world. They have also centred me on what matters most to me: that life is a journey, and I want to live it courageously.
I hope to bring this awareness into my coaching practice. There are no issues too trivial or too daunting, it requires only that we are willing to take the first step forward. Always forward.
Open and authentic. Empathetic and supportive.
I provide a safe space for honest explorations, and will support you through the journey to reach your goals.
I believe that our successes can be defined only by ourselves – based on what matters most to us.
I want to live life courageously, and embrace all that it has to offer – all of the joys and all of the lows!
