" I gave up the successful Paris and London advertising and fashion world I had been in for over a decade, and returned to Africa, to study with Maria Khosa, the most amazing woman I have ever met. Her teachings of nature and its workings were more profound and meaningful than anything I had learned in my years of Cambridge academia...I studied at Cambridge University (85-87) I was a model in Paris for several years, then went on to do marketing and advertising with London agencies under the Saatchi and Saatchi umbrella, managing European accounts. I love European culture and strength of character, but it couldn't be more different than the raw power and pulse of Africa." [1]
