The deepening biodiversity and climate crisis draws me to direct my
energies toward planetary ecology and conservation. I am always
eager to work on - and learn more about - ethology (animal behaviour),
plant-plant and plant-insect interactions, ocean
life, indigenous and conservation practices,
invasive species management, and rewilding. I am keen to take on
opportunities in these areas, especially on projects that may contribute
to habitat preservation and restoration.
I came to focus on the green economy after working through a
PhD in international politics and philosophy at the University of
Cambridge, England. Despite some lingering damage, my doctoral work left me a careful observer of what Nietzsche called the "will to power", and its role in what Wittgenstein referred to as "language games." I still have a lot of love for words, but I trust them less than I once did. My loves now are more tangible: the soil and water and seeds of this beautiful planet, and the many creatures who inhabit it. Let me leave you with a shot of two of my favourites, Tulo and Haemish, who, despite all I've said, generally keep me well grounded.
