“I still don't know why, exactly, but I do think people can have a spiritual connection to landscape…” - Hannah Kent
ROOM + WILD TEAM
Born from the friendship of two coconut lovers. Built by two travelers' hearts. Inspired by the world.
"I put the lime in the coconut"
Lover of the tropics, animals, seafood, caipirinhas and anything coconut.
Sasha has wandered from place to place as long as she can remember. From petting camels on Bulgarian beaches to long train rides to Finland, sailing through the Mediterranean with her mom or eating the best tomato salad of her life in a hidden Turkish treehouse. She discovered early on that those are the types of experiences that stay with you for life.
Growing up in Moscow, and studying at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Sasha now calls Toronto her home.
Always falling in love with everything Latin or Mediterranean, Sasha's trips to Greece, Mexico and Colombia have sparked the creation of Room + Wild. Quickly discovering that her positive travel experiences coincided with the extraordinary accommodations where she stayed, Sasha wanted to help others explore exotic destinations in a new way. Wanting the intimacy and comfort of a rental home combined with the luxuries one would get from a hotel, Sasha found what she was looking for in eco-lodges, family owned villas, sustainable design hotels, and unique b&bs - all now a part of the Room + Wild collection.
Still travelling the world any chance she gets, discovering new nature retreats and wishing she could take her cat Leopold and white german shepherd Louie along, Sasha dreams of guiding the tourism industry towards sustainable travel and one day building her own ecolodge on a small South American island with her husband Nick.
"There are people who swim in pools while next to the ocean... I am not one of them"
Lover of the universe, oceans, dogs, and really good tomatoes.
Born in Toronto, Canada to immigrant parents - mom from London, England and dad from Rhodes, Greece, Nick knew there was more to the world than his hometown from a very early age. Summers were spent in Greece, eating octopus and watermelon or climbing ancient ruins. Winters in Canada were spent playing hockey, building igloos, or chasing the family dogs.
Nick has always been a huge wildlife lover and supporter, fascinated by oceans (most notably the Shark), and holds sustainability close to his heart. After studying Marketing and International Business at Ryerson University as well as Art Direction at The Toronto Film School he went on to work as a Brand Manager in Advertising and the Music Industry, specializing in digital and experiential marketing. He continues to apply his multifaceted creativity in connecting the dots and executing successful collaborations and partnerships. Nick has helped Room + Wild grow beyond its horizons and has shaped it into what it is today.
When Nick is not exploring and documenting new corners of the world, adding to his rock collection or looking at the night sky at his summer home on a small Greek island of Kastellorizo, he is producing music, marketing brands, or cooking "something different".
“I am easily satisfied... with the best.”
Lover of exotic architecture, heavy metal, french films, Japanese toy culture, and good tequila.
Maddalen was born in Toronto, Canada to Hungarian and Italian scuba-diving enthusiast parents. Following their underwater adventures, from Hawaii to Jamaica to Muskoka, all through her childhood, Maddalen developed a taste for unique undiscovered places.
Maddalen lived and breathed the Toronto music and art scene. After graduating with honours in Film Studies at Laurier University, she started her career in Public Relations. As a publicist she worked her way through Joe Fresh, Faulhaber Communications and starting her own company, before taking a plunge and moving to the pastel streets of Guadalajara, Mexico in 2017. When she's not wandering through agave fields in the Town of Tequila, snowboarding in Whistler, having cocktails named after her, or being a new mom to her cat Mezcal, Maddalen is working on PR, strategy, and brand for Room + Wild.
“What you perceive is what you create”
Lover of spiritual physics, multiculturalism, abstract art, permaculture, 90s acoustic, Spanish cuisine and Arabic architecture.
Born and raised in Bright’s Grove, ON growing up on the beach Sam always had a desire for exploring the unchartered waters of life, whether that be through geographical exploration or the expansion of mindset, she always strived to view things from a new perspective. Travel has been a part of her life since she can remember, and whether it be living in the south of Spain, traveling through Moroccan deserts, the Greek islands, Peruvian cities or the African countryside, Sam always felt most at home through sparking a connection with people in the most multicultural of circumstances.
Of British, Native American and Germanic heritage she had a yearning for more of the European lifestyle. After finishing an undergrad in European Studies at one of the greenest towns in southern Ontario, the University of Guelph, she moved to Granada Spain to immerse herself in the culture and language. This experience granted insight into just how small the world can become through travel, and she went back to Toronto for a post-graduate in Global Business Management, with the hope of connecting the worlds resources through international trade.
She went from working in the world of fashion to the Ministry of Trade and Tourism of Peru and became well versed in the Latin American lifestyle. Now living in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, when she is not assisting small businesses in the agricultural and textile sectors grow to new markets internationally, Sam finds her creative source and inspiration traveling among the beaches of Zanzibar, discovering green spaces in the city, writing about her journey and representing R+W along the way.
