Festival PR

I’m a mom, a wife, a friend and a lover of the sea. Everything I do is connected to the ebb and flow of the ocean. Its where I am from, and where I will be going. In the last 40 or so years of my life, I’ve been blessed growing up in a wind-swept suburb of Cape Town on the West Coast. My travels have taken me from the far reaches of icy Alaska to the balmy beaches of Bali and everything between. A career in media and marketing has introduced me to many brilliant people with inspiring stories to share, and I get to share them.
