Connecting People and Communities to

I have dedicated my life to building bridges – between people, between cultures, and between communities.

I show people that to live better lives, we need to awaken a passion inside of us, and learn to unite and collaborate. I believe we have far more in common than divides us.

Diversity is something we share – and we should celebrate and learn from our differences. I believe there’s a lot we can learn by connecting with people from different cultures and who see and do things differently.

To better understand each other, we first need to better understand ourselves. Through my different projects, I encourage people to discover their true value and purpose.

I expose people to new opportunities made possible by working together towards a single vision. My own purpose wasn’t always clear to me. It was only after the loss of my mother at a relatively young age that my journey began. My love for Africa, particularly the Malinke people of West Africa, and their culture of joy, respect, and music was born in 1995 when I attended a djembe workshop. This connection to Africa was consolidated a year later when I travelled across the mother continent to produce a BBC documentary about African elephants. I left my career at the BBC in 1997 and spent several months in West Africa studying the music and history of the djembe. It was there I made my second home in the village of Abéné, Senegal.

More than twenty years later, I now dedicate my time to awaken and inspire people to be, think, and act differently.

When I’m not developing myself, exercising, working or travelling, you can likely find me at home in Senegal, exploring the outdoors, and learning from the great natural world.
