I help pioneers to create their Masterpiece—their portal to a sustainable world.
Over the last few years, I have helped thousands of leaders articulate their Purpose and create their Masterpiece. I have worked on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for organizations like the United Nations, WHO, UNICEF, Gavi, The Global Fund, the International Committee and Federation of the Red Cross, HP, Roche and Samsung.
My insights are based on painting in extreme locations all over the world. They taught me when I stop resisting the environment, no matter how extreme it is - blizzards, gale force winds, tropical storms - it stops resisting me. At this moment, there is no separation between me and our world—we create it every moment of every day.
I published my second book, #Masterpiece, in 2020 and became a bestselling author. I have also contributed to two other bestselling books. I founded The (artist) inside, am a partner of Ashoka, a facilitator of Scotland's first Business Decelerator on the Isle of Bute, and a Master Trainer at the Entrepreneur’s Institute, the largest community of entrepreneurs in the world. I am also a certified energy healer and NHR practitioner.
I live in Switzerland with my beautiful wife and two wonderful children, Sasha and Daniel.
Having lived in multiple countries across three continents, I understand migration, transformation and adapting to a new life situation after death, divorce, and job loss.
I was born in a small town in South Africa and started part-time work as a waitress when I was 16, the start of my multifaceted career.
Born a creative, I've studied fashion and ended up working in many different industries, starting with clothing factories, banking, restaurant industry, sports fashion, denim, ski and outdoor, finance, styling, photo and film productions, and last but not least Human resources and as an Inner Lifeskills Coach.
Working for brands such as Nike, Lev's and JP Morgan Investment Bank, I thrived in many of these environments and sucked at others. I learnt that when you're aligned with your skills, your purpose and your integrity, the world is a magical place. A place where you know you make a difference daily.
I share my 30-year lessons of work and life experience for you to succeed in your life by knowing your true worth, your essence.
The products and services are designed for your Blooming.
