What people say about me:
Pleasant, calming voice
Open minded and light-hearted
Creative with words and symbols
Meticulous, with an eye for detail
What I love:
I love love stories and I love writing and presenting.
My childhood dream was to become a journalist and a writer and I'm very happy I could make that dream
come true. I have worked for national broadcasting services, for newspapers and magazines.
Around the age of 30 I got intrigued by the power of symbols, rituals and the path of inner growth,
discovering psychotherapy, meditation and yoga. I wrote several books about these themes.
In 2007 I graduated as an integrative psychotherapist and in 2011 as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher.
In New Zealand I graduated as a celebrant at the Auckland Celebrant School and I got registered as an
official Marriage Celebrant in 2013.
I'm also very fond of dancing. I dance salsa, Argentine tango, African dance and freestyle, conscious dance.
I have been a party deejay for 20 years, nowadays I mainly deejay at Ecstatic Dance Events.
But, once in a while, I still throw a good party in the mix…
