I am an accredited adventure site guide specialising in mountain guiding up to 2700 metres above sea level. I have certified First Aid qualifications and years of hiking experience.

To me, the outdoors provide happiness, consolation and inspiration. Nature can be soothing and mesmerising. Sometimes merciless and brutal, yet without opinion or judgement. It is ours to protect and preserve. 

I have previous work experience from the film industry and IT-sector in Sweden and from humanitarian and non-governmental organisation in Norway and in Cape Town. I studied International Relations at the University of Amsterdam.

Nonophela is a word from isiXhosa. It means to do something with diligence, to take everything into consideration.
