We are running out of time. By the year 2030, we must halve our greenhouse gas emissions if we’re to have any chance avoiding the worst of climate change. That’s 11 years from now. To put that in perspective, Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was released in 2006 – thirteen years ago.

I’m a climate-hawk and environmentalist based in Canada. I’ve done it all: Worked for political parties, written policy, and worked in the world of corporate carbon credits. But few things compare to being a campaigner.

I’m currently working part-time as a digital campaigner at Stand.earth, where I use digital tools to marshal popular power against oil and gas projects. I hold environmental degrees from Yale and McGill.

Previously, I’ve served as President of Sierra Club Canada and founded Carbonzero, A provider of carbon offsets and greenhouse gas management services. As youth, I was a founding member of the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition. Currently, I serve on the board of Sierra Club BC Foundation. I’ve also been a university guest lecturer, an expedition educator, an amateur rock climber, guitarist, and drummer.

Currently I split my time between Toronto and Vancouver.
