Ticha Balula was born in Africa with a voracious love of life and a capacity to embrace many passions. She moved to Lisbon at a very young age and was immediately enchanted by the contrast in her surroundings. Architecture and design have always been her passions. Although she has degrees in Management from Universidade Católica, Lisbon and Harvard Extension School, Boston, she has spent most of her professional life in business but never put aside her true loves.
With an intense love of travel, she lived in Boston, USA for 2 years and travelled extensively throughout the USA, Central America and Brazil. Having built and restored 4 homes in the last 10 years, she finally took the plunge into training for the TripWix curation team in 2016.
Now that she is inspecting homes in Mexico, Spain and Portugal, she has finally married her work with her passion!
