I am a professional geographer, media expert and entrepreneur with international experience in sustainable tourism development, environmental assessment, ecosystem management, web, media & application design and production. These skills are underpinned by a good knowledge of physio-geography, ecology, IT and marketing. I am also experienced as a consultant in world heritage sites, protected areas, GIS/GPS, biodiversity conservation, education, regional development, tourist information systems, social media, web & graphic design, and distance learning. Since 2001 I have been working as a consultant to UNESCO. In 2005 I became the Managing Partner of INTEWO | World Habitat Society GmbH, a company which I founded together with colleagues from the University of Paderborn, Germany. INTEWO focuses on environment, tourism and education for sustainable development. I consider myself to be a multi-location citizen with bases in Schlangen, Germany, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, and Muscat, Oman.
