Visual Communication to influence behavioral change towards sustainability is my thing.

I believe in building systemic change to the current paradigm through bottom-up change, at a grassroots level as well as top down. I believing in reinventing not what we do, but how we do it is fundamental, and educating effectively through collective participation and skill sharing is key to securing a future for generations to come.

I think that London or Hackney has a fantastic opportunity right now to be a leader of change, by setting a new narrative of how we want to do business in the world along with everything else...
