Growing up in southern Germany and Turkey sparked my desire to experience new countries and cultures, so I trained in hospitality in Germany and then launched my career in the UK, working as a food and beverage supervisor at a 5-star hotel in London before moving to Muscat, in the Sultanate of Oman. I spent two years there, immersing myself in the Omani culture and working as an Events executive within a multicultural team.

Moving back to England with my husband, I’ve had the great opportunity to work in unique venues and hotels in and around London, while gaining more experience in Events management. It’s a hugely varied and challenging field which, over the years, has included anything from organizing engagement picnics in a Middle Eastern desert to ELLE magazine’s Style awards and film premiere after-parties.

To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing people enjoying themselves, everyone connecting and sharing an experience, and knowing that you put this together and made it happen!

My work has also enabled me to continue my passion for travel. Exploring new destinations like Sri Lanka, Mexico, Vietnam and Cuba… often way off the main tourist trails.
