“I am passionate about community and believe that with increasing globalisation it is essential for local communities to grow and to thrive. I also believe that everybody has a talent or a skill and can bring value to their community.

Local Spark addresses both these issues in a very positive way. Through my design, IT and marketing skills, I aim to make interaction with Local Spark practical, fun and engaging for all its users, and offer help and advice wherever I can.”
