…I spend a pedestrian life trying to find excuses to return back to the region. I have set up FromOverHere, a consultancy providing international affairs and strategy advice. Its mission is to support organisations navigate a complex world. I’m especially interested in how governments might address 21C challenges. Given my motivating principles are a focus on social justice and the need to bring different sectors together to jointly address the challenges of the 21st century world, it seems like the right place to be at the moment.
It’s increasingly hard – which is a nice thing – to separate work and fun time. I’m reading, writing, rediscovering cooking, travelling, and catching up with people (whether my Portuguese family, friends from UK or studying abroad, living in Brick Lane, my adopted Senegalese family, or the many fascinating people whose ideas I get to listen to). What has been most precious about life since my silk route journey is the freedom to follow my somewhat wibbly, often sartoriously challenging, always entertaining star.
