Why work with me?
Because we need (re)newed approaches
My Ph.D. is in Futures Studies and Indigenous Politics. My research-creation processes involve technology and traditional knowledge practices.
I can articulate technical and cultural protocol needs. Often combining the two - while centering the latter - leads to meaningful discoveries.
In short, futures are shaped by futurities: decisions we make in the present moment.
What I offer are:
1. Decolonial and Indigenous-rooted approaches to strategic planning and anticipatory work, such as my brief for the UNDP on Indigenous Futures.
2. Consultations and plot/character/research work for those writing SF and other fiction work.
Booking with me for consulting work also supports others by:
1. Supporting more pro-bono projects each year
2. A portion of each booking is gifted to specific Indigenous-led organizations and cultural practictioners
Details about my two consultation types are noted below. Al consulting and research-creation work will be through my business website below.
Bookings will begin mid-December 2023.
