An avid writer, digital content specialist, editor, I have been part of the online media for most of my working years. I have recently enjoyed a fairly long stint with a travel website. Things I love are travelling, the outdoors, my family, and have recently taken a penchant for painting. Following my inner conscience is what I believe in, and for me happiness is an attitude to life.
