Headshot of Ben Parry

Hi, I'm Benjamin Parry

I'm originally from London 🇬🇧, went to university in Philadelphia 🇺🇸, lived for 6 months in 佛山 🇨🇳, and am now based in Toronto 🇨🇦.

I write Skillful Notes, a newsletter about how people, organizations, countries, and civilizations build competence

I spent the last six years in strategy and operations working at the intersection of food and technology. Most recently I took the Tim Hortons ☕️ loyalty program, data science practice, and financial services business from 0 to 1.

If you’re interested in the work of Christopher Alexander, James J. Gibson, Charles Taylor, Matthew Crawford, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Michael Pollon, Thich Nhat Hanh, or C.S. Lewis, or want to learn about about any of my work experiences I’d love to chat!
