I'm the producer behind POWER PLAYS.

I am a public interest technologist based in Berlin, Germany.

I first became involved in the agenda setting and decision making processes of Internet governance institutions back in 2015. Along the way, I've met a collection of fascinating, informed, and intelligent policymakers and public servants who have dedicated their lives to creating the Internet that we all use every day. This podcast is a tribute to them - and also a historical record, reflecting on and memorialising some of the critical decisions that were made and why.

Before starting POWER PLAYS, I was a technology policy fellow with the Mozilla Foundation, and I represented European civil society organizations on the Council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization, the body which sets policy for generic top-level domains such as .com and .org. I am an alumnus of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Please reach out to me if you have any suggestions or comments on how POWER PLAYS could be improved or if you would like to suggest a potential guest to be profiled in a future season of POWER PLAYS.

POWER PLAYS is supported by Grant for the Web.
