My goal for the Plug is to help people better understand the intersection of energy and climate change.

My writing includes thoughts and analyses on the interplay between (and complexities of) economics, politics, foreign policy, and psychology.

As it relates to energy source preference; I am agnostic. I cover everything from renewable energy, to fossil fuels, and everything in between.

Demystifying the role that energy plays in our society.


I grew up in Vancouver, BC and then attended Queen's University. I then spent 3 years working for RBC in Toronto and Goldman Sachs in New York, before working briefly at an energy-focused PE firm.
