I work with organizations that are mission-driven. The mission? To craft effective public policy that accelerates the transition to clean energy as a central solution to climate change. From the production of clean energy to the technologies that use it, I’m passionate about creating economic opportunities, enhancing well-being, and advancing reconciliation while cutting pollution.

I offer a unique blend of skills spanning policy expertise, communications savvy, and political acumen that can help you develop and execute strategies that get you results.

Effective problem-solving requires looking at the big picture: analysis helps us understand its pieces, and synthesis unlocks how they connect, relate, and interact. Evaluation empowers us to learn how to make progress faster and more effectively.

Working with civil society organizations, businesses, philanthropists, and governments, I help build bridges and forge strategic alliances.

As with any systemic change, there are barriers to the solutions we need and plenty of people that can help you identify them. I call them the “no, because…” people. As a solutions-oriented thinker, I can help you find and secure “yes, if…” policy solutions that enable progress.

A Prescription for Climate Progress: Stubborn Optimism, and More Stubborn Commitment

This essay was originally published in Policy Magazine. Heat domes. Atmospheric rivers. In 2021, my vocabulary expanded in ways I hadn’t anticipated. Living in British Columbia, I witnessed the cascading impacts to services and supply chains that accompanied the heatwaves, wildfires and flooding, and felt the sense of helplessness shared by most British Columbians as…
