About Me: I live in Toronto where I work as a research manager and consultant specializing in green buildings and sustainability of the built environment.
I hold a Master of Applied Science in solar buildings engineering from Concordia University and a Bachelor of Engineering in biological (environmental) engineering from Dalhousie University.
Concept: I started this site as a way to collect my letters to the editor and essays that have been published in various publications including The New York Times, The Globe & Mail, New Philosopher, Tricycle, The Walrus, Architectural Record, and Issues in Science & Technology.
Interests: In general, the content of the site drifts towards the following themes:
- Science / Philosophy: I’m interested in existential questions related to ethics, technology, and how they can be applied to contemporary issues.
- Sustainability / Environment: I focus mainly on issues related to the built environment such as green buildings. I’m also interested in the philosophical, scientific, and psychological aspects of sustainability.
- Culture: Everything from politics to religion to comedy to literature.
- Design / Urbanism: I’m inspired by architecture, cities, photography and graphic design.
