Who am I?
After a number of years as a successful software entrepeneur I now focus my efforts on carbon mitigation. I’m active in Cleantech venture capital, technology incubation and commercialization, and public advocacy. I am currently Managing Partner of the privately-backed MaRS Cleantech Fund, and a Senior Advisor at the MaRS Discovery District. I sit on the board of a number of clean energy companies and organizations.
I hold a BSc in electrical engineering (U of Waterloo), an MSc in philosophy of science (University of London and LSE) and an MA and PhD in philosophy (U of Toronto).
It is my belief that we have yet to have a serious, public conversation about the threat of climate change, and the economic opportunites afforded by the global transformation to a low-carbon economy.
