How quickly things can change. After a gap year in South East Asia and another year working with the family, various projects are crystallising into new forms. The objectives remain the same however it is time for this website to have a complete revamp. I’ve written enough to fill at least 50 notebooks and journals – from the tiny jotters to the more sizeable tomes so it is probably sensible to begin sharing much more than I have. Please sign up to my newsletter to keep abreast of what is happening so that you may enjoy any synergies that they may be. I’m excited about what is unfolding and emerging. So I at least am going to have some fun!

I firmly believe that the best business is done with those people with whom you resonate the most so my intentions are to offer an open view into my world enabling you to get to know much more about me and who I am. However that is merely an invitation, a conversation starter for you to share with me what matters to you. Please do connect, tell your stories and let us see where our paths lead.

Specialising in the world of arts, luxury and artisan businesses occasionally branching out to work with people who have “ideas worth spreading” I am dedicated to celebrating the art of hand crafted. I am always interested in particularly inspiring opportunities that align with my interests and values. This might include a whole plethora of such as renewable energies, environment, permaculture, organic, gourmet foods, humanitarian projects, spiritual development and personal empowerment. The more unusual, obscure, quirky and random it is the more likely I will be curious about the potential possibilities.
As a writer
I love to play with words building concepts and ideas both in the abstract sense but also in sharing stories, as well as any knowledge and expertise accumulated over many years. I love writing and can be quite prolific. If you can’t find what you are looking for or what you expect, tell me, it probably won’t take me long to oblige.
Two books are in the process of being birthed at the moment. Both tackle the issues of thriving in an era of exponential. The modern day challenges of information overload from everywhere are having a serious impact on our business and personal well-being. Technological innovations, global transformations and the regular upheaval caused by political, financial and environmental changes can all test the best of us. The challenge is how can we not only survive these changes but flourish and thrive?
My belief is that we need to slow down to keep up. There is an inherent need for us to be much more aware and mindful of the minutiae, the breath of the moment and the inspirations that emerge from within and out. Above all we need to be very much connected to self and aligned to purpose to really make the most of the changes that are happening across the world. We live in exciting times and never before have we had so many opportunities to explore. Please do sign up to receive my newsletters if you want to be kept up to date about their progress.
Like many people this is one of my favourite quotes and I firmly believe that to lead a fulfilling life, all we have to do is be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous which means being who we are meant to be.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson

Light, colour, texture. So much grace in such a small view of the garden. #gardeninspirations #garden #greeninspirations
Nothing like sitting out in nature. It’s so calming and restorative. I’m very pleased with this little find. A second hand portable box easel for tuppence ha’penny on Gumtree. My long latent inner artist can come to the fore.

Buttons buttons buttons. One day I’ll write the story of my #millionbuttons but for now here’s a taster of some of the more modern ones I have in my collection. My aims are to convert them into a deposit for home of sorts. Anything from a caravan/motor…
