One of my earliest memories I cherish would be with my grandad sailing across the bay underneath the warmth of the Australian sun. He passed away when I was 10 so these adventures will always be close to my heart.

3-The most magical places you’ve been and why ?

During a cold winter’s day a group of friends and myself went on a road trip to visit temples scatted along the east coast of Japan. Our final destination was a little island called Enoshima in the the Kanagawa Prefecture. We sat on top of a cliff over looking the ocean with Mt Fuji in the distance, eating ramen and watched the sea eagles dance above us.

This island was full of temples, some dedicated to love, health, children and happiness.
