I have a background in communication with a special focus on the use of new media for social inclusion and local development.

Since 2009, I am working as training specialist in both private and development sector, where I have gained experience in instructional design and quality assurance for e-Learning, facilitation of online and face-to-face trainings, educational research and web 2.0 for learning and social interaction, mobile methods for learning.

During the past 6 years, I worked in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. I was also involved in the design and facilitation of workshops in Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.
