At the weekend: I’m trying to improve my carpentry skills by building furniture of questionable quality, taking care of my garden, and attempting to broaden my perspectives by reading books on ideas I don’t agree with.

An idea that powers me: Bringing together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to find solutions to pressing issues. I keep being impressed seeing what we can achieve if we’re able to properly communicate and set common goals, and how easily we can fail if we don’t.
