multi-disciplinary artist & futures designer


Over the past 10 years I have been a keynote speaker and educator to many different audiences at conferences, organizations, museums, art & design schools and universities. In my talks I combine personal stories with powerful frameworks and tools to dissolve apparent paradoxes in the world of today, and make complex new futures vivid and actionable.

My talks give insight into the next phase of human and technological evolution. It is my goal to support designers and innovators to thrive in uncertainty, blur the boundaries between technology & nature, involve all the senses, and realize the full potential of our body, mind and spirit.

How can your organization make sense of and thrive in a world in crisis? I help organizations align with the new ethics, cultures, stories, and innovations that fit this era. My clients range from healthcare brands to cultural institutions to wildlife NGO’s and creative agencies. My facilitation and design processes transform strategies that do no longer work into more natural, resilient and embodied ways of operating and communicating.

I operate in an amorphous pool of collaborators. Together we carry projects with resilience and flexibility from concept to execution, working confidently across a range of facilitation skills and prototyping media.

Previous clients include: EarthToday, EarthFlag Foundation, Parley for the Oceans, Google, Uber, and Ahold.
