Profile

Life is an ever-changing adventure, and I'm on a continuous journey of growth and transformation.In marketing and communication consulting, I specialise in helping businesses of all sizes create compelling content and build meaningful connections with their audiences. This work allows me to thrive by combining creativity and strategy to make a positive impact.At the same time, I am driven by a deep curiosity and passion for spirituality and philosophy. This passion has led me to explore various religions, meditation practices, and sacred plants, setting me on a path of self-discovery.My relentless pursuit of knowledge and my intuition guide me as I explore the mysteries of existence, striving to uncover ultimate truths.This is the story of my life—an ongoing search for wisdom and enlightenment.

BOOK AND PODCAST

On average, I read about 10 hours a week since I was five years old. Some weeks more, some weeks less.The authors of books become my virtual friends and mentors because I can always absorb their words and turn them into my knowledge.I read between 50-100 books every year and summarise the Top 10 books to my friends and family members.
