Hi! I was born in South Africa but as a child my family relocated to Canada and lived most of adult life in beautiful British Columbia. I attended Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a Communications degree . After I graduated university I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years in the field. As an IT manager I went onto pursue my MBA at SFU and found inspiration to start my own business and travel and film.By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and filming.
During a wild and intense 3-year period I sold my house and purchased a camera and traveled the globe with my camera in search of adventure. I traveled to places such as Beijing, Singapore, Shanghai, The Grand Canyon, and Turks and Caicos.
After returning to Vancouver I planned my next travel adventure to Australia, Asia, and Taiwan. I sold my car and all my possessions and arrived in Taiwan on a working holiday my essentials, camera gear, and my dreams.
I discovered the laptop lifestyle digital nomad culture in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I used Chiang Mai as my base to travel and film around South East Asia. I now teach videography, online video business, and share knowledge from my IT career.
I am interested in travel, technology and photography. I have been living in Vancouver, BC for the past few years. Living here has given me an opportunity to explore all of my interests.
I have worked in the hotels running their pricing strategy and distribution strategies. It lead me down the path of starting couple of technology startups focused on the industry and also run a blog on the hotel industry.
Now, I run a hotel technology company.
