I am a consultant and social researcher in the area of rural livelihoods, access to land and natural resources with a focus on learning and network coordination. I am passionate about trees, agrobiodiversity and nature at large and can spend hours just walking. Working more than 9 years with global networks, campaign NGOs, research institutes, grassroots organisations and intergovernmental organisations in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa, I’ve gained experience in network development, multi-country and multi-stakeholder project coordination, communications and research. I am a creative, insightful and independent person, looking for meaningful simplicity in the things I do. I like to explore approaches of communication, sharing and that are horizontal and accessible, and respect different forms of expression individuals and communities feel comfortable with. Photography means a lot to me, and I am slowly working on my personal project.
I document and promote success stories of approaches contributing to inclusive negotiations in the access and sustainable use of natural resources by local communities, with a focus on the potential of visual tools and storytelling in processes of participation, advocacy, learning, mutual understanding and change.
