Behind the Scenes

8 Quirky Facts About Me

Global Explorer

My life’s a globe-trotting adventure! Born in sunny Abidjan (Ivory Coast), I navigated childhood in chic Paris (France), surfed into adulthood in sunny San Diego (USA), hustled up the corporate ladder in glitzy Dubai (UAE), and leaped into entrepreneurship in charming Lisbon (Portugal). I’ve truly lived across four continents!

Life Without a Pancreas

It’s true, I live without a pancreas! Born with hereditary Chronic Pancreatitis, my genes, unfortunately, programmed my pancreatic enzymes to attack the organ itself since birth. This led to its complete destruction, resulting in type 1 diabetes and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. But here I am, thriving against the odds.

Power Walking Enthusiast

No matter what life throws at you – feeling unwell, exhausted, or just in need of a mood boost – my universal remedy? Power walking! It’s not just a hobby; it’s my go-to solution for everything. Whether you’re facing life’s lows or just looking to enjoy the highs, I say, “Walk it off!” And yes, my home must always be within strolling distance of a good park.
