Why I do what I do
To help the world transition to being powered by renewable energy, reducing its reliance on fossil fuels and lowering global greenhouse gas emissions... plus a large helping of wanting to satisfy my own curiosity about things (mostly energy and emissions 'things')!
Something interesting about me
I used to be able to hold my breath and swim underwater the full length of the 50 m pool.
