I thrive through exploration, discovering, sharing, and caring.
My drive is to connect people to nature, the ocean in particular, and to encourage for a more conscious and natural way of life. I believe adventure gives one a new set of eyes, expands the worldview, and one will act accordingly.
But alone I can only do much. I’m welcoming collaboration aligned with the oceanpreneur values of ethical adventure travel, conscious living, simplicity, zero waste, ocean conservation, outdoor and natural lifestyle.

Tourism Destination Sustainability
On a project base I work with tourism destinations and organizations to improve their sustainability, branding, development and positioning. Focus areas: nature-based tourism, island-based tourism, water sports tourism, sailing tourism, coastal destinations, climate change adaptability and resilience. My extensive exploration in different regions of the world gives me a comparitative and birds eye outlook on the global versus local challenges and opportunities.
I hike, dive, sail, drive the extra mile and meter to find out what's around the corner and why. If you need a destination explorer and investigator to assess, research, document or receive a different perspective, I'm your girl. I explore by foot, sailboat, campervan, and sooner or later by landrover.
Network, referrals & clients
During +15 years of nomadic living and travel in all continents with different means of transport I've become particularly helpful in building bridges between people, organizations, vessels, projects in relation to sailing, ocean conservation, freediving, nomadic living and travel, digital nomads, kitesurf and surf travel. To better connect you with other ocean minded lifestyle designers, projects and organizations, I can communicate and connect you to relevant contacts. Also, I invite you to join the Ocean Nomads network where I, and other ocean nomads build bridges and connections to accelerate missions and projects.
