Personal Fieldwork Projects:

Maintaining critical relationships at executive level and on the ground has always demanded persuasive, context-sensitive diplomacy with agencies, communities and relevant authorities. I have cross-fertilised Film Industry and Relief-Work experience in difficult and isolated overseas environments across language barriers, using community advocacy and whatever technical communication tools made available to me.
