Activist and Parent

Since making the decision to be the at-home parent of my two sons, I have increasingly become an environmental activist on the local level. I chair Chorlton’s Big Green Festival, an event that I helped found, and that we hope will continue annually. The festival educates the community about issues such as local food production, renewable energy, bicycling, carbon footprints, energy efficiency and green building.

In December 2009 I released a short film titled, “Glocal” which challenges viewers to become more aware of the impact of their daily routies on the environment, international relations, and personal health.
