I have a passion for real action on climate change and a belief that we are changing the world for the better.

We are faced with countless challenges, and with those come endless opportunities. Over the past several years I have worked on many projects, from founding Footprint, to producing a feature-length film exploring how envisaging Utopias can be the first step towards real change, and cultivating hope for a better future.
