About Me Me in a nutshell? How uncomfortable!

I am an environmental strategist fascinated with future and emerging environmental issues. I work in stealth mode in several environmental ventures and I am the cofounder of the Plastic Pollution Coalition http://plasticpollutioncoalition.org/ a nonprofit organization created with the vision of a world free of plastic pollution and of the toxic impacts of plastic on humans, the environment, wildlife and marine life.

As a social Media hound, I am a reporter, a speaker, and a op-ed writer on citizen journalism and the transformations in human communication, and I take part in several social media projects such as PeriodismoCiudadano.com, BlooSee.com, Public Media Collaborative, Nuestra Voz, and Spot.us.

Educated in Spain and France, I hold a graduate degree in Macroeconomics, as well as a Law degree. http://manuelmaqueda.com/

In September 2009, I took part in Midway Journey, an expedition of 5 media artist to Midway Atoll led by environmental photographer Chris Jordan http://chrisjordan.com/ to documents the effects of plastic pollution on baby albatrosses. The images and videos from Midway Journey have been featured by Discovery Channel, The Guardian, Newsweek and other international media outlets, and have spread virally over the Internet. http://www.midwayjourney.com/
