My works are about human connection. In a world that holds a lot of racial oppression, gender violence, structural inequalities and despair in face of the climate crisis, I feel a deep pain and disconnection with the monotony of a system built upon profit and exploitation. I’m working towards systems change through opening up conversations and listening to people; the pain beyond the façade, the stories of those made invisible by society, the disappointment behind despair, the hope and motivation of change makers…

If you’d like to join forces to bring about systems change, check out the cross sector work I’m doing at INSEP (International Network for Socially Engaged Practitioners) that I founded in 2017.
