About Me
My lifework is dedicated to the socio-ecological evolution of our presence on Earth. My passion is centered in investigating how we can use design-led processes to transition our societies towards regenerative and participatory cultures.

I move between three areas of work: Qualitative design-led research that directly informs professional practice and systemic strategies; Designing and leading holistic life-learning programmes related to sustainable development; Developing organizational culture and identity through transformative processes.
