I’m a writer and editor based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The 2020s need to be the decade of the Green New Deal, getting us on track for the Ecosocialist Century and a viable long-term, thriving human civilization here on Earth. This site will feature writing making the case against Terminal Capitalism and for the transformative changes we require. If you're interested in ecosocialism, Green New Deals, and the Right to the City, you'll hopefully find some value here and contribute according to your means.

I’m a contributor to collective left media and organizing projects as a writer, editor, and translator, which is a fancy way of saying I do a lot of unpaid work. I’ll be using this site as a place to publish writings that I think are important but don’t fit in other outlets and for which I would like to get at least some remuneration. 

I’m a dad, socialist organizer, tenant and labour union member, co-founder of independent media sites including Ricochet.Media, and the author of two non-fiction books: A Woman Among Warlords, co-written with the indomitable Malalai Joya, and Michael Ignatieff: The Lesser Evil? I’m also currently completing a thesis on the potential for a Green New Deal in Canada in light of our concentrated corporate mediascape.
