With a background in art history, international media and destination branding, Maria has slalomed from Europe to Africa, the Middle East, South-Eastern Asia, and the Americas; lately, her focus is on developing projects in communication, education and wellbeing. Having collaborated with publications such as Foreign Affairs , Forbes, and Le Figaro, she has launched creative platforms that reﬂect her quest – oonda – and stir intercultural dialogue – avventura. She is a long-time contributor of Financial Afrik.
Yogini, occasional sailor, and lifelong explorer, she loves having a good conversation, and thinks dialogue is a place of co-creation. This is the background to her initiative to produce ﬂuxgate.
Grateful that life keeps on giving, and that she can share so much about it.
