I'm Mendel.

I like making stuff. I'm sure you know the feeling.

I live where I was born: in urban East Van, on unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh lands.

I believe in biodiverse, interconnected communities.

I want to help build systems that facilitate healthy + equitable cities.

I'm interested in solutions that recognize value in waste streams, conserve embodied energy, and influence sustainable behaviour.

I co-host a podcast about these things and more.

(I enjoy foosball, building + riding bikes, dancing, eating fruit, and stomping around in the woods)
