Born in Indonesia, coming from an island and raised by a different culture in the Netherlands has without a doubt shaped who I am, shaped what I love and most importantly shaped the foundation from which I now continue to grow.

I love to travel and have a deep appreciation for nature with a healthy appetite for the unknown. To do so I am using my vision as a nomad, seeking out and collaborating through different elements like yoga, art, writing, nature and surf. We are all surfers of sort, sometimes surfing literally in the ocean like me, but most often surfing the current of life and all that flows with it.


In 2013 I was diagnosed with cancer. This emotional and natural experience changed my view on life. I realized more how precious the physical body is and how fragile we still are as human beings. I also realized that nothing is guaranteed even when you live healthily and enjoy life fully. My own yoga and meditation practice were great tools to keep me in form both physically and mentally.

After living in Morocco for three years, I am currently back in the Netherlands; living in this dynamic and vibrant city of Amsterdam. I´ve discovered that it´s actually more fun to share it with others and to be surrounded by people who inspire us. That´s what keeps me going. And so I have been graced with incredible experiences with teacher guides of healers, friends and other warm loving people who I’ve met along the way. They are the ones who keep my eyes and heart open to the limitless potential and love that surround us. Thank you!

Love & Light,
