How do I make a difference?

Design Thinking is at the heart of my approach to innovating solutions for social change. I believe that creativity is in all of us. It is the most potent transformative tool that we have at our disposal as humanity. It can change our lives and transform the world. With that understanding, I apply Human Centred Design - we begin from the basics, from what people know, think and do. We add some cultural exchange and intergenerational dialogue. Together, we generate knowledge, skills, tools and products that cause people to get off the path of least resistance, to rethink their environment and take risks. To push boundaries. We pursue incremental learning & continuous improvement to deliver new and scalable solutions. That is my model of sustainable development, and it works magic!

Unique Value

A multitalented social designer & strategist who brings forth experience, expertise and networks - gained from a decade of working across continents and cultures while solving diverse sociocultural challenges. I bring to every assignment the ability to navigate and build complex relationships between artists, media, techies, government, diplomats, corporate and civil society partners. I have registered as much success and failure, and I bring that honesty to every new project.
