Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a juxtaposition of a cultured, intelligent, well travelled
person mixed with dance floor diva, lover of cocktails and a great
teller of stories leaving people in fits of giggles. Born to Danish
& Kenyan parents and growing up in 8 countries has taught me
a) Humble sitting rooms can be as welcoming as a 5 star hotel
(although, do love those long w/ends away in boutique hotels!
b) Challenging situations & experiences make you stronger
(although when in a war zone one simply think "let me the hell out
c) You only live once, so making the most of life key. Having a
cheeky spark, mixed with humour and naughtiness is key :-)
I guess I was always going to end up in a job which would require
travel but bliss is coming home to London and enjoying what this
city has to offer - be it dinner and a good bottle of valpolicella
or Rioja wine in favourite restaurants ,a Sunday stroll along the
river, visiting a photography or art exhibition or perusing &
taking advantage of Time Out's latest recommendations. However, I
also love cooking my fusion culinary delights in exchange for good
company - any takers?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Digital Marketer and am currently working for a large
Financial Services company.
In keeping with my desire to stay fit & active, and explore new
adventures/ trying new things - I am planning to climb Mount
Kilimanjaro to raise money for cancer research. I have no idea what
I have to do to train - do you??
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bringing people together (am the social organiser)
Being positive/ optimistic but at the same time realistic.
Standing on my own two feet. My financial self-sufficiency has
always enabled me to enjoy the finer things in life (eating in
great restaurants, exploring great new bars, taking spontaneous
week-end trips away and multiple holidays in a year). I am
therefore hoping "cupid" can help find me find my "match" who is
interested in doing similar things, is intelligent, ambitious,
honest and open to finding their match.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At first glance, people usually notice my smile and my eyes.
They then notice my cheeky spark that brings out my playfulness and
naughtiness as they chat to me :-)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family & friends - "The informality of family life is a
blessed condition that allows us to become our best while looking
our worst" (Webbster's)
2. Freedom - "the power to determine action without
3. My passport - "Traveling is one expression of the desire to
cross boundaries" (Yehoshua)

what you do are in harmony.” (Gandhi)
6.My iPhone - "Communication - the human connection - is the key to

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Which holiday destination, that I have not yet explored, would
satisfy all of the best ingredients to create my perfect
The secret mix of ingredients include:
- Culture - e.g. appreciating the rich history, traditions and
artefacts in Vietnam's UNESCO heritage village of Hoi An
- Local Cuisine - e.g. stumbling across a local restaurant off the
beaten track in Thailand, high-up on a hill by the rice paddies
with stupendous views
- A mix of R&R and Exploration - e.g. lazing around on beach in
Cape Town and intermittently having friends join at times
throughout the day OR exploring the nearby wine regions of
Stallenboch and Paarl (incl wine tasting of course!)
- Trying something different - e.g. Ice-trecking on the Patagonian
glacier or looking down from the top of the Iguazu falls (am scared
of heights :-(
A challenging one right?? Keeps me busy dreaming :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winding down from the typical crazy week at work...
I'll either be catching up with friends for post work drinks/
Will relax at home and catch up with my friends abroad via skype or
simply watch a film on Sky+ (my recouping in advance of a night out
on the Sat :-))
