I was honoured and excited to speak at PechaKucha volume 30 where I spoke about this…
“Our next speaker’s career has managed to thread together social finance and social innovation, blogging and SEO, food security, urban sustainability and local economic development.
He is currently the Executive Director for the Hastings Crossing Business Improvement Association, a BIA founded with social innovation and inclusion at its core. He is also Program Coordinator for Building Opportunities with Business, a Community Economic Development Agency in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
and when he is not working to improve the lives of many residents and business owners of the DTES, he is growing food in shipping containers as the director of Urban Stream Innovation, a Food Systems Technology Startup.
As you can well imagine, his Academic studies are significant, his writings and commentary well published, and his roles on numerous boards and non-profits throughout Vancouver are endless.”
