I research, design, and weave new economies that make people and planet thrive.


Economic systems that make people flourish whilst regenerating the planet are possible within our lifetime.


The 20th-century economy was based on dynamics of social inequality, ecological exploitation and constant expansion, leading humanity into the danger zone of planetary and social instability.


The 21st-century economy requires a new operating system: a new “common” sense of organizing economic relations based on principles of social care, ecological justice, and deliberative democracy.


I enable businesses, cities, and organisations to navigate and cocreate solutions to complex sustainability and transformation challenges.

How i do it

An expression of
my values

I ground my work in principles of care, craft, and creativity, always connecting cognitive and bodily experiences and realities. I bring together the fields of sustainability, rural-urban development, and digital technology. My thinking is inspired by emancipatory philosophies, communities, and practices. I always strive to create environments of mutual support and peer-to-peer inspiration.
