You don't have to be tech savvy to build a website you're proud of!
I live in London with my husband and 6 year old boy. Here are a few random facts about me:
🇿🇦 I was born in London but grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa
🇬🇧 We went on holiday to SA when I was a baby and never returned to the UK!
⭐️ I went to a Waldorf school from age 3 until 18
🚫 I had a tech-free childhood. Not hard in the 80s/90s but didn’t even have a TV
⭐️ My first job was selling wooden toys at an organic market when I was 14
📷 At 17 I built my own dark room and taught myself how to develop and print black and white film
🎓 I studied Graphic Design specialising in Multimedia Design (which back then was animation, film editing etc, not websites!)
🌍 After studying I lived, worked and travelled around Europe for 2 years
🍋 I met my husband in 2006 when he was showing off pouring tequilas from dizzy heights
💍 Five years later we got married under a 400 year old wild fig tree in a safari-style wedding
🖥 The first website I built was for my own photography business (a side-hustle to my main job)
🇬🇧 In 2016 we packed up our lives into 4 boxes and moved overseas to a city we hadn't been to before... with a baby in tow
😪 The move was really tough: I became a stay-at-home mum, felt isolated and depressed and lost my identity
💪 In 2017 we had to make another big life move to get back in alignment with what makes us happy, and moved to London to be closer to family & friends for the support
💖 I registered as self-employed before I even knew what I wanted to do, how I was going to do it, who I wanted to serve or how I was going to pay the bills
📺 I love documentaries and anything non fiction
🛍 Not a fan of chocolate or shopping
️⛄️ I love a good prank. Scary Snowman for the win!
