Myles currently works as a Social Marketing Supervisor for the City of Edmonton, overseeing the implementation and evaluation of evidence based behaviour change programs. On his way to his current position he has worked for the Alberta NDP, spent summers surveying the backcountry for mountain pine beetles, and held a variety of roles in municipal waste collection. Myles has volunteered his time as a contributor to Terra Informa, an environmental news radio show, as well as a door knocker on political campaigns at all levels.
Myles passion for environmentalism and climate action comes from a deep love for connecting with nature. Any chance he gets he is backpacking, biking, fishing, or skiing.

He strives to continually challenge his own thinking and behaviours while working to support decolonization.
