I have 14 years experience in sustainable business communications and branding.
I began my career shaping the communications for what’s now one of the world’s most respected solar energy companies, Solarcentury, and in 2006 co-launched SolarAid, the non-profit leading electricity access in the developing world. On the communications team of green consumer finance innovators Abundance Investment, I have also been a financial reform commentator with Move Your Money and a communications lead at international environmental non-profit CDP.
I have appeared on Sky News, Channel 4 News, BBC Earth in the Independent, The Guardian and The Times and have guest lectured in art, design and environmental communications at The University of Sheffield and The University of Thessaloniki in Greece. I have a BSc. in Geographical Sciences from the University of Bristol and have trained in PR, journalism, textile design and documentary production.
I also have a passion for art and design. In 2014, with the support of Ashden and Abundance, I founded ‘Human Nature’ the international environmental art organisation, increasing the visibility of contemporary artists exploring our connection to nature across the world with exhibitions during London Design Week and street art tours including The Art of Beeing USA in 2016. Joining international green brands, non-profits, philanthropists and artists, Human Nature has been featured by The Guardian, BBC News, Vice, Fox News, National Geographic, The Art Conference and Wellcome Trust.
