About Me: 

Born in South Africa my travels have presently brought me to Australia. I am writer in the process of building an online publication and experimenting with film and new media to connect voices. I am interested in creating global communities, collaborating with and connecting people to empower, create change and expand out circles of compassion.

Originating from Africa I chose Gazelle as my journal title as a play on 'Gazette' for their Grace, awareness and agility. The Gazelle teaches us to be at ease with our own vulnerability, to discover and explore new paths to change and prevent ourselves from being consumed by the predators of our pasts or those lurking in the shadows. They teach us to reclaim our energy and assert our aliveness through living and thinking in a life enhancing way. The Gazelle's wisdom includes awareness, speed, grace and agility, beauty, ability to manoeuvre, vertical movement. Gazelle's shows us that with awareness and skill we can be comfortable discovering and exploring the unknown and despite our trials and tribulations to make life an adventure.

I look forward to connecting with some incredible people.
