Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a freelance social media consultant, minimalist-in-training and I love endurance events.
A few years ago I discovered that I am much more content living with less material items and more experiences.


Much to people’s surprise, I used to own an award-winning beauty salon.
In 2010, I made the decision to change my stressful and materialistic life into the one I had always dreamt about. I started getting rid of all my stuff to such an extent I sold nearly everything I owned!
I soon discovered that the simple life is a happy life.


A series of events has now led me to take part in 2 awesome challenges:

  1. I rowed 1,800 miles around Great Britain in June 2017.
  2. I am training to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic ocean.

The best bit of it all? I am not even a rower!
I like to prove that anything is possible even without the finances, skill set, connections or previous experience.
