Hi, I am Anika!
When I was younger and would be asked 'what do you want to be you grow up?', I would say 'an artist'. Since then, I have painted, sculpted, cooked, photographed and created my way to where I am now - a tech savvy media professional with a passion for content creation.
My passion for media, art and design led me to London, Europe's media capital, to pursue a BSc Hons degree in Communication and Media Studies. Upon graduating I began working in television broadcasting in operations then switched to the tech side and have remained in the field since.
I live in Amsterdam with my travel-partner husband and golden-doodle pup, Toki, although I haven't always lived here. I was born and raised in Scotland, in the city of Glasgow. After completing university in London, I moved to New York where I lived for 5 years - some of the best years in my life! I then met a boy who lived on the other side of the country in San Francisco. After moving to sunny California for love, a year and half later we relocated together to Amsterdam, where I have been for 4+ years.
Outside of my day job, I love traveling, photography, cooking, and fashion. Traveling teaches me to admire the ordinary and see the beauty in the every day. It inspires me to cook with unknown spices, and introduces me to new flavors. It influences the patterns, colors and textiles I wear to express myself. And it allows me to learn that we all have a lot more in common than we do differences.
I immersed myself into the social media world when I created my own online jewelry brand and produced an income from sales through Instagram only, learning the power of social media marketing and quality creative content. Since then, I gained interest in creating my own Instagram capturing moments of my everyday life and travel.
All of these elements brought me to here - sharing my stories and services with you. I invite you to get in touch with me, to tell me your travel stories and inspire my next trip, to see what magic we can create together or just to say hello!
