About me

With over 10 years of experience in the energy sector, I have a solid professional understanding of  a range of clean energy technologies, and of the politics and economics of renewable energy and climate change.
The biodiversity and climate crisis compels me to direct my energy toward work on 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, conservation practices,  local and global efforts to manage invasive species, and the re-wilding movement. I am eager for new opportunities in these areas, especially on projects that clearly support 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. The PhD did some lasting damage, but also made 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 love words, but more warily than I once did. And then there's Tulo and Haemish (below), who, despite appearances, generally keep me well grounded.
