In my free time I like to do activism and raise awareness about human rights, environment, animal rights and species/ecosystems conservation through events, interactive workshops of film festivals. I do pro-bono media and PR advisory work for NGOs.

Ideal team

I prefer to work alone or in small groups - pair or three persons. I can accomodate larger groups though. I've worked in different environment - busy news offices full of people, alone as a freelancer, in newsrooms, in the field and in hierarchies.
