Three things are now important to me: Firstly, our environment: I have more than 20 years international experience and a proven history as a team leader for bi-lateral and multi-lateral technical assistance projects in the field of marine and freshwater resources and environmental management. Secondly, innovation and the development of ideas to advance our understanding of the inner and outer worlds that we live in. Thirdly, website design, which helps me support and understand the needs of others.
