Hi, I'm Ben Parry

I'm originally from London ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, went to university in Philadelphia ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ, and now live in Toronto ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ.

I've spent the last six years working at the intersection of food and technology. I'm currently a Director of Strategy & Operations at Tim Hortons โ˜•๏ธ.

I publish a weekly essay on Substack. I generally write about the things I'm most interested in which means it can meander a bit. In general though I think a lot about religion, agency, cities, and complexity science.

I'm also active on Twitter.

If youโ€™re interested in the work of Christopher Alexander, Nassim Taleb, James J. Gibson, Thich Nhat Hanh, C.S. Lewis or Michael Pollan, or want to learn about Tech @ Tims Iโ€™d love to chat!
