Many years ago, when some tv executives were looking at my showreel, this is how they described me: “she’s great but we just don’t get her.” What they meant was they couldn’t put me in a box or any category. Instead of being upset, I was proud.

I don’t want to be easily defined, because I am the sum of my varied experiences. I spent 20 years reporting on hard news but I also presented a show about all the things I loved: architecture, entertainment, and style. I had a standing subscription to fashion & news magazines but I found, as I grew older and my life got more demanding, I got more demanding about what I wanted to see in those pages. I wanted depth and perspective. So I decided to create and curate that content myself. 

I am interested in people, our journeys, how we think, and what makes us who we are. If you’re like me, and you’re someone whose interests range from foreign affairs to fashion, health & wellness to pop culture and lifestyle then welcome to The Citrine Room

The Citrine Room is the place to feel connected. Understood.

It is the place to find clarity. The place to realise the path to success is not a straight line, rather one with detours that help direct us to living our most authentic life.

The Citrine Room is the place to fashion our mind with ideas, thoughts, and inspiration.

It is the place for all the layers that make us who we are.

Because we matter.

"The task is clear: to create a culture of caretaking in which no one and nowhere is thrown away, in which the inherent value of people and all life is foundational."

--Naomi Klein
