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 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...
