transversal system change


I specialise in network building, sensemaking and transdisciplinary innovations. With fifteen years experience in institutions and communities across Australia, North America, Europe, Asia and the MENA region; collaborations include the United Nations Development Program’s Knowledge and Innovation Unit, the European Commission’s DG Research and DG CONNECT, Concordia University, Edgeryders, NESTA, City of Montreal, the Federation of German Scientists, Australia Council for the Arts, University College London, Design Studio for Social Intervention among others.

I am currently in the business development phase for a new not-for-profit in HOLISTIC SECURITY – the convergence of physical security, psychological security and digital security for activists, policy-makers and the public. Concurrently, I’m collaborating on research projects associated to decoloniality, and providing consulting services for work in collective intelligence, public innovation, diversity and social inclusion and the next generation internet.

I am a dynamic facilitator with a particular interest in emergent and responsive techniques to work through difference. Renowned for programming high profile and award-winning incubators, festivals and symposia, I have launched place-based participatory development frameworks spanning heritage, social inclusion and smart cities. My research and philosophical practice investigates the connections between people, places, processes and potential across decolonial, late-Capitalist, post-structuralist and speculative landscapes. I am seeking new collaborations and clients.
