Your Water Footprint Author and Speaker

MUSE talk sml

As an award-winning journalist and author of “Your Water Footprint”, winner of Best Science Book for the General Public,  I’ve given dozens of talks and presentations on environmental issues including water, climate, energy, biodiversity and more.

My back story:

In the midst of a successful corporate career I changed direction to pursue my growing interest in writing, science, conservation and the environment. Over the past 20+ years I’ve written more than 2000 articles on science and environmental topics around the world for National Geographic, the Guardian, New Scientist, IPS, and many more.

For some of this work I was fortunate enough to receive the prestigious Prince Albert/United Nations Global Prize for Climate Change and Environment Reporting.

%22your water footprint%22 reviewsIn late 2014 my first book was published:  Your Water Footprint: The Shocking Facts Behind Our Thirst for Earth’s Most Precious Resource.   Reviewers called the book “brilliant and shocking” and “exceptionally lucid”.  And then it won the award for best science book in Canada.

I’ve done presentations for all ages and backgrounds including kindergarten kids and scientists in California, journalists in South Africa, public officials in Spain, general public in Idaho, teachers and business executives in Toronto.

He’s able to make complex issues seem simple without taking anything away from the urgency and importance of his message. This quality makes his presentations guaranteed
successes.”
