hello there, i'm Nettra (pronounced according to spelling: net + tra = nettra).

i'm a global nomad and digital native currently based in Lausanne. i was born in California, raised in Phnom Penh and was a passionate flâneur in New York City and Paris.

i am a former political scientist keen on helping diverse stakeholders work together towards sustainable solutions to poverty. learning about the impact of technology, entrepreneurship and creativity on society is what gives me energy. i am so happy to have the opportunity to do this everyday at EPFL.

this tumblr helps me keep track of things which have happened to me, as well as the interesting, funny, inspiring and beautiful links i find this on this internet odyssey.

for something more focused and structured (i.e., without photos of cute animals), you may like to browse my online art portfolio or visit my website. you can also find me on twitter, ask me a question or feed my fish.

Great pitch from Gimball, @epfl_en #startup and semi-finalist at #fdot14 @hellotmrc, creating a fun and potentially life-saving drone.

Fell in love with this design and got the wallet and folio…

I feel like Kickstarter is where I spend the most money.

Love the idea of supporting beautiful projects.

Hope to see a Cambodian silk edition one day! http://kck.st/QepOYE
