Compassion is the new cruel
For his work inspiring people to live more sustainable, healthy and compassionate lifestyles.
Michael is a science teacher and volunteer director of EarthFest, Earth Film Fest and Animal Allies. Growing up on a grain farm, he was often exposed to farm animals when visiting neighbours and extended family. After leaving Canada, Michael lived in the UK, Taiwan, and China before moving to Singapore.
During a backpacking holiday in India, he realised that the farming and diet he had been normalised to had devastating environmental and health impacts with moral implications he had never considered before. He now works to close awareness gaps and inspire people to live more sustainable, healthy and compassionate lifestyles.
