making sense
of sustainability

If we really want to make impactful change, it’s time to dramatically reconsider our approach, message, and outdated ideas of what it’s going to take to save the planet.

I am an expert sustainability author, consultant, and speaker with a focus on cutting through the BS and calling out the things others are afraid to talk about. From my base in Melbourne, I work around the world at making sense of sustainability. That way it's not just a scary buzzword, so people can be confident the changes they’re making are having a real impact.

Being sustainable doesn't mean living off the grid, giving up international travel, or hanging from the side of an oil rig. 

It means being a pragmatic altruist.

I've spent two decades in the business of saving our Earth. After leaving my role at the United Nations, I traveled the world studying the impacts of sustainability first-hand in factories, on fields, and in Fortune 500s. 

I share my message through books, consulting to businesses, and keynote speaking to audiences around the world.


In my book, “Sustainability for the Rest of Us,” I reveal why much of what we've been doing isn't having a big impact at all. The no-holds-barred, unorthodox book reveals to readers what we really need to change, why we need to change, and how to make it happen.

My mission is to move sustainability from theory to practical strategies that help people and businesses confidentially make real impact.
