What I read

Lately I have been reading many novels by contemporary African writers. My daily blog repertoire includes natural food and beauty blogs.

Side projects

I have worked with international organizations, cultural institutions, and creative entrepreneurs, including ImagiNation Afrika, a children's museum in Senegal; OSCE Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights in Poland; and several UNICEF offices.

Ideal team

I prefer to work with small teams of 2-5 people, with emerging clients or clients with a social outlook. I work best with managers who do not micro-manage.
