Calculating a creative curve

From hedge funds to hunting for the next hot opportunity, I am curating the life I want to live professionally and personally.

While I began my career in financial services – and that disciplined, structured grounding has been invaluable - I soon discovered that my fierce desire to make a difference while satisfying my inner entrepreneur, would led to new adventures. I simply needed to trust my instincts.

The latest challenge in my 23-year career is a multi-way tie between my role as a developer of children’s play areas in Africa, starting an athletic speciality store for Nike and Adidas in Africa focusing on sportswear and performance, project management of an estate development in South Africa, event planning throughout Africa, and being the author, curator and editor of my lifestyle blog “travel terrific. food fabulous. wine fine”.

I get a thrill explaining the nuts and bolts of my involvement in the project management industry while still feeding my foodie themed blog with the latest sightings of a Michelin chef in my world travels.

My dream is reflected in my drive to leave behind something substantial in my lifetime and most of all, to have fun while doing it!
