Adrian is always looking for good stories.

Whether they are educational, inspiring or just funny as Content Manager it is his role to write sharp, succinct stories based on the amazing things accomplished by the members of Energy Cities. If you have a story you would like to share be sure to get in touch. Conversely, if there are subjects that you’d like to hear more about make sure to let him know because with a network as strong and diverse as Energy Cities there’s bound to be a city facing a similar situation!

Adrian joined Energy Cities in January 2019 to work on what he loves – cities and sustainability. Originally from Canada, Adrian has lived in Brussels for 15 years and loves nothing better than exploring the city, and others, on two wheels.
