I stand on the shoulders of giants.
I like to solve problems, learn and teach about the world, and tackle grand challenges like climate change.
I love to cycle, run, ski, take photos, and learn. I like to recharge in the middle of the Canadian Rockies (or a nice city park) and enjoy relaxing beside a crackling fire. I love to chat about history, philosophy, literature, politics, and wonky physics.
I've had most of my formal education in Edmonton, Alberta, and have met many great peers and teachers along the way. I was privileged to study at TU Delft's campus in The Hague.
My father and I both appreciate expressing our own humanity through art. Photography offers us a meeting place between creativity and technical mastery of light and electronics.
Since I was young, I've considered myself a citizen of the world. I am lucky to have grown up in a country of diverse cultures and landscapes, and have lived in small villages and large cities – but there is much I have yet to learn!
In 2014, I worked and learned in the Hamlet of Pangnirtung in Nunavut. I taught youth coding in Scratch and set up the infrastructure for a Virtual Reality Arcade system.
I have many photos from the beautiful Pang area and kept a blog to share some of what I learned there.
I've been involved in community-building, active transportation and climate advocacy, and try to knock down barriers to more people being included whether outdoors or in our public spaces.
Below are my favourite spots worldwide. Some are delicious must-visit restaurants and others are great points of interest.
