I think that I was born lucky. With a gentle manner and biology teacher training, my dad fostered in me a love for all things wild and natural. I had free-run over massive school estates. This was both when I was a child growing up in Kenya and then as a teen at Hilton College in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands of South Africa. This lifestyle made me adventurous. At the age of 21, camera in hand, I was off on the adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world.
I lost my way briefly in the big city. I worked as a lawyer in Johannesburg. Being lucky me, the oceans drew me back in and I followed my calling, moving back to live closer to the land. I currently live with my husband Ryan Johnson and our young son Finn in Mossel Bay, a quaint seaside town nestled below the gorgeous Outeniqua mountain range in the Western Cape of South Africa.
