Re-introduction. As the bio says, I’m an autodidact, generalist, and synthesist. I write Sentiers, a weekly newsletter for those who want to understand the world and imagine better futures, it’s even been called “the closest thing we now have to a ‘This week in futures’ newsletter.” My work usually has to do with curating and writing, with a fledgling practice in futures.

🚨 👉🏼 A pretty big project has been pushed back 4-5 months, so I find myself with quite a bit of availability for that period. Hit me up if you need a hand finding signals about what’s going on and what’s coming, connecting the dots (making sense), or communicating your thinking (writing newsletters, blogs, briefings, etc.).

For my personal taste, I find that a lot of websites look best on an iPad in portrait orientation.

New thing on the blog, noting for reference a year later. An online version of the short talk I gave at the Montréal chapter of Speculative Futures.
