Dane started her first blog, www.trustme-itsparadise.blogspot.com, an eternity ago, spent 6 years on Boracay Island, shaving half her head, kitesurfing and walking barefoot, finally packing her things, wandering off to Morocco for 4 months post-breakup, and missing the Philippines, which ultimately brought her back to the city, in an effort to “grow up” – something that has yet to be proven an accomplished task. She then spent nearly two years in the nightlife industry, getting paid to start Champagne showers, before admitting to being “too old for this” and trying to become more “normal” by diving headfirst into the corporate scene. As you can imagine, that didn’t last long, and she regained her thirst for all things wild and free and set out to live on all sorts of islands, where you may be able to encounter her in her natural habitat.
She stays sane by alternating meditating with wine-drinking, finds solace in her yoga-practice and comes to life (often unwillingly) during full-moons. A frustrated photographer and a hopeless philosopher, when she grows up she would like to write a book and have little long haired surf-babies and spend her days baking ice-cream cakes and gardening while drinking whiskey.
She lives between Boracay Island, Bali and everywhere else.
