In many ways, I have been exploring environmental communication. Not only in practice, but also in researching the various theoretical components of communication, metacommunication, ethnographic interpretations, discourse analysis, and sharing thoughts around the strategies for improved communication. Happy to engage further on this!
For me, being a media consultant offers a rare sense of fulfilment. Beyond creating environmental content and supporting organizations with other media “stuff”; I like being the unseen face and voice behind many successful organizations and brands.
By the nature of my work and to satisfy my subjective curiosities; I try to stay aware of what is happening in the world and how the world works. Having a passive political stand, the rapid unfolding of diplomatic relations leaves me more confused than informed. Nonetheless, I am always interested in international diplomacy and contributing to the extent that I am knowledgeable.
It is not enough to know; our knowledge of things becomes more usual only when we share with others. This explains why I commit time to writing on my blog, sharing thoughts on socials like LinkedIn, publishing op-eds and articles, hosting Podcasts (like the Climate Talk Podcas and another on the way), anchoring conversations and speaking on different fora.
