About Me

Our personal stories and dreams are the ones that make us who we are 

I am an explorer, a dreamer, a creator, an artist, and a rebel. Summarizing my life in a few sentences is quite a difficult task and when I  asked friends and family to help me describe myself in a few sentences, they started laughing. For many years I was under the impression that I needed to get specialized in one of the areas that I was interested in. I just couldn’t decide which one I should let go of. Should I become a lecturer or photographer?, should I work for a corporate company because I was told that I have great analytical skills, but what would happen with my creative side? The joy in taking photos and telling stories through a lens is as much as helping communities and people to create a better. These facets have equal importance in my life, and they all genuinely fulfill me.

Traveling and living in different countries and cities helped me understand that my joy and curiosity for different topics and areas allows me to find delight in fostering change, enables me to adapt to new situations and have the ability to learn with an open mind. I  learned that my curiosity is a strength and not a distraction. It facilitates the process of finding solutions and being creative. It allows me to live in the present moment and not be afraid of what the future might hold. At the same time, it fosters my love for adventure and happiness in my life.

In the past years, I have been able to use this strength while working within the corporate world, moved on to the development Sector, taught at a University and in a prison, while writing on my Ph.D. on Emotions.

I have lived on 4 continents, traveled more than 35 countries and speak multiple languages. This arsenal of experiences is what I love to share with others and this is what keeps my mind open while helping others to walk the path of exploration and finding fulfillment and joy in their life.

My love for cultures and people can be seen in my photography and professional work.

I’d love for you to be a part of the adventure! Want to drop an email? Contact me at thezivaway@gmail.com
