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 lived with my husband Ryan Johnson and our young son Finn in Mossel Bay from 2008 to 2022. Mossel Bay is a quaint seaside town nestled below the gorgeous Outeniqua mountain range in the Western Cape of South Africa. Here I explored and documented the wonderful cultures, nature and oceans of Southern Africa as a photographer, writer and travel guide.

In 2023, I made a journey across the southern ocean to New Zealand, my husband’s home country. Here, I am again excited to discover and document the wonders of this pristine land and the wonderful people of Aotearoa
