I discovered my deep love of travel relatively young when, at the age of 13, I spent eight months exploring the length of India with my family. By the time I was 17 (and visiting India for the third time), I had found another of my life’s passions: photography. Back then I was shooting Kodachrome transparencies and black and white print film, which I processed and hand-tinted myself in the converted-kitchen darkroom I shared with my brother.

Now, 25 years later, I still travel as often as I can. I earn my living from an eclectic mixture of activities. (In no particular order): I source unique textiles and handcrafts from around the world for designers and boutique-owners; I offer bespoke travel consultancy services; I sell my travel-finds online along with my own range of products; I teach Reiki classes and give treatments from a little studio in our garden and I’m currently working on a number of books inspired by various aspects of my life and travels.

Home for me is the top of a windy hill on the wild West Coast of Auckland, New Zealand where I live with my man, my mum, two dogs, a cat, lots of chickens and a pig called Alice.
