On the professional side, I’m a juror for FLEFF10. FLEFF is the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, the Finger Lakes being a series of lakes in upstate New York.

Also, I’m a finalist for Vodafone (Netherlands) its World of Difference program. Basically, it’s a competition for giving away jobs in the international development sector. The project I applied for is with the ICRC, the Red Cross, in Kenia, and is supposed to run for a year.
On October 8, after a job interview during the day, myself and the other four finalists for this job will have to attend a show at the MTV studios in Amsterdam, where the ‘winner’ of the job will be announced.
