I'm an artivist:
I tell stories that matter.
At the centre of everything I do are people and their ever-exciting humanity that I want to borrow and share with the world. Stories deserve to be told the right way. With dignity. With empathy. With patience. With love. With openness. I am fortunate to have had the chance to talk with people who are changing the world in all sorts of ways and when I'm especially lucky, be part of making change myself. I am always interested in a challenge, love working on diverse and creative projects, big and small.
If you're considering me for a project, don't hesitate to reach out and connect with me.
