My storyPublications


I work as an international consultant in agricultural science and policy, based in the beautiful winelands area of South Africa. With a PhD in soil science, my technical focus is on sustainable soil/land management and soil organic carbon in relation to sustainable food production, resilience to climate change, and the Sustainable Development Goals.

I chose independent consulting not as a “job”, but as a way to live a fulfilled life. This website is a platform to share my professional journey and some of the beauty life brings along the way.

Welcome to my journey!
