About Me


Working on improving the world and myself...


I have lived in 7 countries on 5 different continents and have visited dozens of others. I used to work in a hospital assisting in angioplasty procedures. Then one day 2-3 years ago I read one book - Lester Brown's "Plan B" - that changed my life. I quit my job and came to London to study environmental science. Now most of the time whenever I am not reading for uni, I write in an attempt to spread the word on environmental challenges ahead, or I dance salsa.


I am most interested in our common future on this planet, so I study and write about environmental and social justice topics. In my personal life, I spend most of my time dancing: salsa, bachata, kizomba, semba...
