    How Do You Want To Feel In Life?

    Many years ago, in a beautiful window of personal insight, I realised that I could curate my life to include what I wanted more of - and leave out what I didn't want. Wow, thank you me. I'll do something with that. And so I went about curating [...]

    What I Love Most About Paris

    I've lost track of the number of times I've visited Paris. And to list my favourite things might end up being a very long list. But it would be fair to say that some of the most strikingly unique experiences I've had, have been [...]

Creating New Holiday Traditions

2 years ago, I started a new little Christmas tradition. After my dad died, I made a crystal clear decision to no longer buy into the commercialism of Christmas gifts (somehow those events felt connected), and instead dialed up my desire to have rich experiences and connect with awesome people each holiday season. So from my Airbnb in Paris, I offered out to the universe (really, just my mailing list) 10 conversations with people via Zoom. That was all. [...]

Fuel Up to Level Up – How you Can be a Conscious Co-creator in this New World

A hot topic of conversation that is coming up with creative people that I’m talking to right now is - feeling a sense of burnt out.
