About me

CO bwI’m a writer, consultant, and garden-variety curmudgeon based in Bangkok, Thailand. I’ve written for a variety of platforms, including: The RSA, Harvard Business Review, and my column with SALT Magazine. I founded the Wicked Problems Collaborative and will be publishing our first book (on inequality) in the fall of 2016. I’m also a Fellow of the RSA, and a consultant who designs and implements zero waste programs.

My writing interests run the gamut of major social and environmental issues known as wicked problems, including the ways in which businesses interact with and impact systems, in looking to foster more just and sustainable societies. If you think any of that might be of help, I’m happy to connect and discuss possibilities.
