I'm convinced that the renewal of the cultural cooperation goes trough the so called "creative industries". Based in Vienna Austria, fluently speaking german, i would like to offer an alternative to the traditional post-colonial relationships. Center of interests: urbanism and architecture, gastronomy, environment, new medias.
