My current interests are in how to respond to complex urbanization, littoralization and connectedness globally. (Kudos to David Killcullen for the concepts.) Also interested in improving the use of open source technologies for development, disaster management and the protection of human rights workers and journalists.

Born in Australia, I grew up in Canada with English parents. I've worked in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, The Netherlands, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sudan and Cambodia.
