After spending the last 7 years travelling around the world, and meeting people from all kinds of different backgrounds and cultures, I’m optimistic about where we’re heading and I believe in the power and collective will of humanity to shape the future.
During my journey, I discovered a deep passion for social entrepreneurship, travel and education. Now, I want to dedicate the rest of my life to service and working on projects that make the world a better place to live in.
In particular, my philosophy is rooted in the following principles:
•Education – giving people around the world the opportunity to learn and grow.
•Belonging – bringing people together from all over the world to share their stories, passions & skills, and create meaningful connections.
•Nature – respect for nature and the preservation of our planet.
As an advocate of social entrepreneurship and using business as a force for good and a means to create positive social and environmental change, all projects that I am involved in (or will be involved in) will contribute to the betterment of humanity and our planet.
Here is a list of my current projects, as well as several ideas for the future:
Share. Experience. Connect.
With a vision to empower humanity to belong and grow, Podstel is a vision to create a worldwide community of “homes” for travellers and locals to come together to share their stories & skills, learn something new and create meaningful connections that last. Our first two locations are up and running in Bucharest, Romania, so if you’re ever in town, be sure to come and stay with us.
Health. Creativity. Community.
With a vision to promote healthy living and creativity, Teahouse 5 is an alternative cafe, events space and community hub in central Bucharest, offering over 50 varieties of teas from all over the world, as well as smoothies and health-conscious products. Each week we organise workshops, events and performances for locals, expats and travellers based on our three pillars of healthy mind, body and spirit.
A platform that empowers young people to shine
Creative Steps is an NGO on a mission to give young people with raw talent an opportunity to shine. We are a platform that helps up-and-coming artists and creatives with resources, audience, and know-how so that they can focus on growing their skillset and sharing their unique story and passions with the world.
The Zen Nomad
Growth Through Travel
Based on the belief that travel is one of the best ways to grow, The Zen Nomad combines travel and personal development in a journal-like format, sharing thoughts, ideas and lessons learned from the road to inspire more people to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and use travel as a catalyst to change for the better.
Wisdom of Humanity
Growth Through Travel
Following a slow-travel philosophy, Wisdom of Humanity is a travel journalism project and vision to embark on a world pilgrimage to document the wisdom that unites humanity by interviewing one human being from every single country in the world and chronicling the stories and lessons they have learned in life.
University of Life
Experiential Learning for Humanity
Combining hospitality, education and nature, the University of Life adopts experiential learning, teamwork and community-based principles to teach leaders and changemakers of the future an alternative curriculum built on topics that students typically wouldn’t learn at a conventional school or university. Topics include emotional intelligence, cooking, entrepreneurship, leadership, health, sustainability, public speaking & building relationships – amongst many more.
