From chaos to clarity

In today's interconnected world, we must increasingly confront cultures and value systems different from our own. This can be the source of great wisdom, joy and opportunity. Often, however, this abundance is instead overwhelming and causes fear, resentment or misunderstandings – whether across regions and communities, or across the siloed worlds of academia, governance,  business and the arts.  

As an editor/curator, facilitator and storyteller, with experience across 4 continents and 10 languages, I bring clarity to this confusion, reveal creative potential in apparent chaos, and help organisations and individuals working internationally better collaborate on a global scale. 

I have a particular commitment to creating and supporting initiatives that can build greater understanding of China and Asia among people trained in the European tradition, or generally contribute to mutual understanding among people from different languages and cultures.

If you are working on a project in that space, or believe that my skills and experience could be of use in a related endeavour,  I will be delighted to hear from you.
