Michael’s career has included stints in business, management consulting, international development and politics. He is currently the Executive Director of Clean Prosperity, a nonprofit that advocates on behalf of strong climate policy. Prior to Clean Prosperity, Michael was the CEO of Mama Earth Organics, a small business that delivered organic produce from local farms to families around the Greater Toronto Area. Before working in the local food sector, Michael was a business management consultant at McKinsey where he advised Fortune 500 companies, institutional investors and governments on key strategic and business issues. He also worked with InvestEco Capital to set up an advisory service that offered support to companies in the sustainable food sector.

When he’s not working on climate change, you can find him building lego airplanes with his kids (he has a son in JK and a 1-year-old daughter soon to enter the school) or doing his best karaoke impression of Vanilla Ice.
