Hey, I’m Brett!

Montreal, Canada · Member since August 2012

Cosmopolitan Canadian/American. Grew up in small-town Ontario with Mennonite roots. Have lived all over: Vancouver Island, Kingston ON, Scotland, London, Cape Town, Oxford, Washington, DC and New York. Travelled to every continent, almost every country in Europe, Latin America and Africa. Still working on Asia! Sometimes I've been a hitchhiker, sometimes I've travelled on diplomatic gigs. Avid triathlete and marathoner, intrepid skier, sometime sailor and rower.

Economist by trade, and have worked at the UN, IMF, World Bank; on Wall Street and in London's City; and in universities around the world.

I'm low maintenance and live simply. My prized possessions: running shoes, skis, photo albums, bikes, my stew pot, and memories. Favourite destinations: diving in Pemba, backcountry skiing in the Alps, and hitchhiking through Namibia.

Motto: while others dither, I act.
