I love miso soup, Chinese shredded potatos and post-it notes.
It was particularly during my time at the news agency Inter Press Service at the UN headquarters in New York that I really learnt how to find a story, see the human side of it, relate it to hard data, and choose the right angle to tell it.
As webmaster of the intranet of an NGO, I work on editorial strategy, user experience, information architecture and web ergonomics on a daily basis, in order to build a thriving online community where the NGO’s activists can easily find information and exchange ideas.
I’m particularly interested in data visualization and online narratives, and the new possibilities they open in the ways a story can be told.
I believe new media and information can help us make informed decisions and empower civil society to bring about social change. My aspiration is to use my skills and knowledge to play an active part in this process.
