About me

I have more than ten years' experience in the energy sector and spent two decades in an academic setting studying and teaching on politics and environmental issues. I have a solid professional understanding of a range of clean energy technologies, and the sociology, politics, and economics of renewable energy and climate change.

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.
