Greetings, readers!

I'm Jason, and though I honestly haven't kept up to date with this blog, I'm excited to share some of my thoughts with you. My home is at if you'd like to read some more of my work.

Since grade 6, when I had the pleasure of learning with one of Edmonton's finest educators, Mr. Dave Fairfield, I've felt a deep connection and responsibility to take care of our environment, stand up for justice, and accumulate and share knowledge with those around me. Of course, many  other role models shaped me into the human being I am today, but I thought I'd give my biggest hero a shoutout.

Every time I have to write a little autobiography, I feel a little older. But anyways: In recent memory, I worked with an organization called Engage North to build a virtual reality arcade for youth in Pangnirtung, Nunavut; a pulp milll; with the National Research Council; the Centre for Integrated Energy Research at the University of Leeds, UK; and am now completing my Mechanical Engineering Co-op program's work experiences with the Government of Alberta Climate Change Office. I'm also the current Project Manager of the University of Alberta EcoCar Team, who build hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for an international fuel-efficiency competition. By the way, Elizabeth is a kick-ass member of our team!

I love to spend time learning about our world and about, and from, the people on it. My key areas of interest lie in technology and its impact on society, engineering ethics, and energy policy. I should point out that that all opinions expressed are my own.
