About The Author
“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”
I am a thirty-something South African with a penchant for slow, immersive travel and photography. I am also the author of the travel stories and imagery on sheerheroine.com where I chronicle the colourful characters and significant moments experienced during my travels. In 2016 I ended a fifteen year corporate career expecting full-on internal rebellion – but the silence was deafening. Two months later, after selling everything I owned I flew to South America to realize a vision that had started to take shape in recent months – one of surrender and reinvention.
The degree to which I have changed since taking those first steps on this epic journey is nothing short of amazing and the happiness that it has bought me compels me to share the experiences that both humble and energize me daily. I hope that these stories ignite or fuel your wanderlust, that it offers a realistic view of the obstacles and treasures that await on this not-so-often chosen path for those seeking inspiration to how to break free from the constructs of their lives.
Come share in my adventures – my life – as I explore the world’s landscapes, its humanity and its beauty. Talk to me about your own experiences via the Contact page, follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or just say hi in the comments section below any post.
