I am at my most happy when combining my love of people and their stories via film, words or travel.
I hope that through authentically sharing my explorations and creations,
you may find something that resonates with you, which stirs in you a pang for adventure or a desire to meet the unknown.
You may notice the common thread of coffee throughout my stories and
Why? Well, coffee is culture. It’s ubiquitous, and a good social barometer. I can easily and quickly gauge a new city based on the coffee culture. Coffee has history and a future… It’s indicative of an ever changing world. And honestly, how can I not love the warm and earth aromas conjured up when a fresh batch of green beans is being roasted?!
The coffee bean is the greatest traveller of all, holding within its pulp many an aroma and story waiting to be cracked open, and released.
In my downtime I love spending time together with my friends and family over a delicious meal whilst a fire crackles in the background, or sitting in a sunlit cafe sipping an umpteenth cup of double shot cappuccino. Coffee is my ‘Kintsugi’. It connects all the cracks in life just like the ancient Japanese did with ceramics. To me, coffee is the black gold in the cracks of disjointed places.
If you long for depth, authenticity, and cross cultural exchanges, then join me on this quest.It will be a journey peppered with honesty, sprinkled with humour, mixed in with travel, mashed together with cultures, garnished with love – and all served with a double shot flat white.
“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.E.E. Cummings, 1955
