Q – What's your environmental sin?
A – Travel. Travel is my passion, the kind of travel that takes me to places very different from home, which tend to be at the end of long plane journeys. I try to offset that by doing it infrequently, only when I can go for a long time, and I've not owned a car for my entire adult life - bike and transit!
Q – What do you do when you're not thinking of forests?
A – Thinking about India, how and when I can get back there.
Q – What do you like most about being a Canopy Board member?
A – I like the innovative approach Canopy has developed to making change in the world, working with business to help them find the leadership path through to sustainability in their industry.
Q – What inspires you to be a member of Canopy's monthly donor program?
A – I think Canopy has carved out a unique role in the environmental movement and I know that it can take a significant investment of time and resources to build the campaigns that put them there. Monthly giving allows Canopy to be able to plan for the investments necessary to do this work well.
Q – If you were a fortuneteller, what would your life look like in 20 years?
A – I'll be splitting my life between Victoria and India, traveling to many other places as well, and doing it all in cutting-edge solar-powered flying vehicles.
Q – What's your favourite endangered animal?
A – Elephants: Indian, Asian, Sri Lankan, African; we need to leave them a lot of space to roam.
