Tom's Bio

Telling a Human Story from an Environmental Perspective:
Environmental Writer, International Journalist, Publisher, Speaker

We are a storytelling species. The stories we tell shape our collective reality. And we all have a voice in telling the story of our future.

As a writer, researcher, and journalist I seek out the individual stories, ideas and people that reflect where we are and the possibilities for the future, for better or worse.
My mission is sharing the collection and expression of these bits and pieces of the human condition that make up this story.

Accompanied by a network of smart, passionate and dedicated people - from policymakers, business leaders, scientists, philanthropists and social advocates - we start out on a journey toward sustainable development, natural economics, social justice and climate action.

As individuals our perspective is limited, together we are on Planet Watch.
I'm a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists.

We've worked together now on several different media sites and he is always professional and dependable. He has always been a pleasure to collaborate with, and I would without hesitation recommend Tom to anyone looking for an expert on environmental issues"

Providing the catalyst for the conversation about sustainability in business

Tom is an expert on global warming and global warming policy. His articles are timely and concise (huge plusses in the world of blogging), and he turns complicated issues into easily digestible content. In terms of interacting with Tom, he's completely reliable and communicative (also huge plusses in the world of blogging). I'd recommend him without reservation!
