As editorial consultant and frequent contributor to The Possible, I explore the trends, ideas and innovations that are changing the future of cities. I’m also a Fellow with the Centre for Conscious Design. (Watch this interview for more on my views on sustainable urbanism and this talk for my views on the philosophy of well-being in the built environment.)
I was winner of New Philosopher magazine’s Writers’ Award in 2016 and runner-up in 2021 (and finalist in 2018 and 2020). I received the WSP Global Innovator Award for my work exploring the role of philosophy in the engineering profession.
Originally from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, I’m currently based in London, UK.
