  • What do you spend your time doing? Questioning the systems at play, society’s, my own, nature’s. Observing life and telling stories through film to make sense of it.
  •  
  • Favorite flower: Bluebells. You’re not allowed to pick them in England because they are protected wildlife, the sense of the forbidden has always fascinated me. They also look beautiful as a sea of blue on the forest floor.
  •  
  • What are personal values that you believe in: I trust people who are loyal, with friendships, love, their craft, their story and beliefs. I strive to live in reflection of my values.
  •  
  • A song or band from your formative teenage years that still resonates with you today and why: James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James album, my Grandad introduced me to him and gave me his copy. I know every lyric and beat.
  •  
  • Fire, Earth, Water, Air? I feel like my spirit is Water but I think my body is Fire.
  •  
  • DIY skill you possess or want to learn: I have been nicknamed Dad by roommates in the past so I clearly love any type of DIY. I can build a good campfire and always remember to measure twice and cut once with any DIY tasks.
  •  
  • If you could change one thing about the world right now, what would it be: The disparity between people. I wish we had empathy for each other’s differences, to allow more space and time to focus on our similarities. We could then be allies with effective solutions.
  •  
  • Movement, meditation or ritual you engage with: I have been practicing vedic meditation for the last five years. A practice that feels like an expansive gift somedays and painfully confronting on others. I love to dance, mainly just dancing around my house to my dog’s confusion or more recently I’ve been going to dance classes a few times a week.
  •  
  • Eco-therapy; how do you like to be involved with Mother Nature? I feel closest to nature when I am surfing. But when I am far from the ocean or in an environment without traditional natural spaces I like to remind myself that the touch of my skin is as close to nature as anything.  
  •  
  • How do you use Activist Mānuka Honey? By the spoonful! I recently recorded my first two audiobooks and hours of using my voice was saved by Activist. I have also been experimenting with it in my cooking.
  •  
  • What is natural beauty to you? Being gentle and forgiving to your skin and body as it journeys through its cycle. I use simple and few products, when choosing things I make sure I can pronounce everything on the ingredient list. The more time I spend outside the shorter my beauty routine becomes.
  •  
  • How do you try and keep your life uncomplicated? Letting complicated relationships go and investing in friends around me that make me feel loved and inspired.

  • A challenge in your life that you have overcome: I’m unsure if you ever overcome something. I feel that we are in a constant process of processing, with new layers always appearing. It’s all challenging from our own perspective.
  •  
  • Is there something you are passionate about at present or want to bring light onto a particular subject? Waste and how we can each individually be more mindful consumers. I think our society has grown so quickly that we’ve lost touch with the cause and effect of our choices.
