About me
From wild swimming in Swiss lakes to stargazing in magical Kenya, from wandering in ancient forests in California to diving in South African kelp forests – I’m anchored in London but very much love to explore our beautiful planet and tell stories about our interconnectedness with the natural world and how crucial it is to protect it. 
 My background is quite unconventional – I’ve never really managed to settle for one thing and pretty much spent the last decade following my intuition, studying art history and literature in my hometown in Switzerland before moving to the UK to complete my MA degree in Fashion Film & Digital Production. I’ve always felt a strong connection to the environmental movement and it is after having moved to the UK that I truly understood the importance of sustainability and the need for profound societal change we are currently facing as a civilisation. I hope the art I create and the stories I tell can inspire people to challenge the status quo, and give them hope – as an optimist I truly believe that humans are resilient and that we have what it takes to tackle the climate crisis if we all come together. I’d love to connect and figure out how we could work together!

Mangrove trees have been illegally harvested in the Mida Creek area for lumber and charcoal production, due to local economic pressures. SeaTrees and their partner in the field, COBE
