Not confined to a single discipline, spaning in many fields. While my background and education undoubtedly have influenced me, they are but threads in the vibrant tapestry of my life that have contributed to who I am today.
I am a lifelong self-educated artist. In owe how hands can bring the emotions to life.
I am a cook. Born in the family’s cooking pot, where ancestral knowhow is transmitted in an informal yet holy process.
I am a traveler, who experiences best the rest of the world, through long sojourns, random encounters, local traditions, cultural showers, art and crafts that tell unique stories and a deep appreciation for its diversity.
I have been volunteering throughout my life, as i firmly believe that true fulfillment comes not just from monetary gain; rather more in recognition, community, connection and the joy of sharing.
I am a nature lover. Deeply inspired by its ability of sparking creativity and instill a sense of belonging, co-existing and humility.
I am an avid reader of hardcover books. they are the magical door gate that connects the collective conscienceless.
I am a doctor of medical dentistry, having practiced for over 30 years, more than just a career path, it has been an immense tool for connecting with the power of hands, the rich complexity of human nature and a school for learning empathy.
It is today, from afar, that i have come to understand how enriching the combination of all this has been and how much the distance makes you realize that culture and ancestral knowledge is carried within; in a non- linear timeless manner and the intertwined nature of culture in all its forms.
Sharing something dear to her heart; EMPATHY.. fearing it could be lost; wanting it to be repeated, perpetuated... Leaving intentional traces as an act of love for those who come after
