About me

Trekkie, journalist, failed computer-scientist, communicator, campaigner and organiser. I have worked for a range of global humanitarian and international development organisations in the past and lived or worked in over 20 countries around the world. My travels mostly took me to the parts that most tourists never reach - so always feel free to ask me about the beauty of Lake Turkana, Thái Nguyên province, Muratella, Naogaon or more. Conversations with me always involve Star Trek or other sci-fi references.

I have been part of the movement since 2007 as a reader, regular donor and occasional contributor.
