How to make a difference captures the faces and ideas of people whose determination, originality and entrepreneurialism is making the world a little bit better. I hope it will provide inspiration and ideas for others with similar aims.

I also want to make a difference in my own way. I have worked as an environmentalist trying to change Shell International for five years. Now I am a freelance photographer and writer, trying to use my writing and pictures to change the world. I speak Chinese and Japanese, have a masters degree in environmental studies and have studied photography at Central St Martins School of Art, London and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC.

In 2009 I was a prize winner of the international Fresh MILK photography competition. www.milkphotos.com

I now work mainly in Oxford, where I am based with my family.
