About me

Campaign Manager - Crisis & Tactical. I am currently spending most of my time on Syria but also work across the Middle East/North Africa region managing this campaign.

Likes - Traveling, footy, dogs (mine), good food, drumming, good music (anything sincere - jazz, funk, unclassified and my own www.derridapearl.com), floating in the sea, not getting caught.

I also blog on my own site at www.kristyanbenedict.com

You can find me on Twitter as @KreaseChan
