What drives you? A belief that ecosystem health is foundational to addressing all our other concerns as humans. A belief that investment in nature, contributing to a net positive environmental outcome, is an investment in ourselves as a species and resident on this planet.
What projects do you work on that you love or are most passionate about and why? I get excited about exploring how an initial commitment to positive change can generate its own expanding ecosystem of new opportunities, co-benefits and interested community. But it’s project implementation, rather than design, that makes me get up in the morning – the chance to ensure the vision becomes reality.
Career highlight/game changing project/something that made a big impact: Providing technical and strategic advisory to the Mekong River Commission’s facilitation of a transboundary, nature-based flood and drought resilience-focused sub-basin plan between the Cambodian and Thai governments.
