I’m a Latvian Kiwi living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I have been travelling since my birth on ANZAC day many moons ago. You could call my parents nomads – they were just never happy in one place for too long so I’ve grown up exploring a decent part of the world and learning languages. I like hiking, sitting by the ocean, doing yoga, making mixed media artworks, writing poetry, drinking wine and socializing with my awesome tribe. As for my profession, I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Art Therapist and I mostly work cross-culturally with international students in an academic setting. I’ve learned that life can be both beautiful and painful and I do my best to live in the present and embrace the unknown!
