He founded a charitable environmental organization for youth when he was a teenager attending high school in Canada, and has since started three additional non-profit organizations in addition to co-creating a global young leaders program for WWF, the world's largest nature conservation organization.
The charitable organizations and projects he has spearheaded have collectively involved thousands of young people in helping to secure our threatened planet and support indigenous peoples in protecting their societies. He has a particular interest in northern Canada, the Amazon rainforest, Madagascar, and the world’s oceans. For his efforts he has received several distinctions, including becoming one of the youngest laureates of the United Nations Global 500 Roll of Honour.
He has expertise in organizing and leading travel programs, particularly those in remote locations. More than 1,500 people have participated in the expeditions and travel experiences he has created worldwide.
Currently he is developing programs for Global Activators that will engage scores of young people in taking leadership to stop dangerous climate change and protect the world’s oceans and forests.
