Lea is a moderator, consultant and researcher in the area of creative communities, social innovations and urban development.

She is skilled in analysing and guiding people towards impactful projects. Also, Lea worked at the University Startup-Centre (TecUP/garage33) where she built and managed the regional venture capital network.

Lea holds a Master degree in Music and Creative Industries which she studied in Mannheim, Germany and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
