Are you interested in communications, fundraising and campaigning for social change? Then let’s talk. In fact, let’s talk regardless of whether you’re interested in those things!
Why and When should I contact you?
If you want to talk about a great idea, or if you are looking for help with communications / writing (English & German), fundraising, and campaigning.
Why do you do what you do?
Because I think it matters, and because I get to work with great people.
Who is your target group?
Everyone who cares about wildlife and the environment.
What/who is your inspiration?
People who challenge themselves not just to ‘perform’ at a higher level, but to perceive, reflect, and love at a higher level.
How do you celebrate?
With people I love, a good cocktail, good music. Ideally on a boat, but I don’t have one.
To build a huge awareness campaign that will make the snow leopard as iconic as the tiger.
What made you happy rencently?
Discovering the beautiful city of Stockholm, the Castle, and it’s denizens!
What’s your fuel?
Curiosity and coffee.
What are your areas of expertise?
Communications. Writing. Translating complex ideas into less complex text.
Duh. The snow leopard, of course. Cats in general. Not spiders.
Have you considered that your opinions might be wrong?
Yes. Some of them almost certainly are.
When things just align. When you’re walking through a new part of a new city, talking to someone with new ideas, or reading a book on a rainy day with your favorite person in your arms.
When you realize you’ve been a dick to someone.
How much coffee do you consume?
What’s under your bed?
Moving cartons. Dust. Perhaps a book.
Say something smart:
I love maps, but I don’t like borders.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What makes you creative?
Working with other, more creative people.
