I have always been an activist, I have found my passion in community radio amplifying and creating spaces where voices can be heard and imagination can be acted upon by building communities of interest. I have been co-producing a show called Latin Waves Media over the last decade and will continue to do so, my background is in communications and Sustainable Community Development which interplays nicely with my media work. I just completed an MA in Liberal studies which challenged me to look at social change in a more nuanced way, what are the best ways we can contribute to heal a broken divided world.
Investigating how our current ideas and beliefs are heavily influenced both good and bad by past events caused me to think about the power of memory, of our ability to Remember to Remember. This process caused my own introspection which is why I started Memory Portal, it is my belief that through memory we can recover a sense of self awareness and a sacred honouring of place. My hope is that we come to know we are a single whole with each other and nature, when we hurt nature we hurt ourselves.
I am fascinated by how our built environments affect our attitudes and behaviours, how our digital lives can be a source of personal and societal liberation if used effectively.
