Entrepreneur, Do-Gooder and Designer, Graham enjoys variety although now finds his future happily confined to social entrepreneurship. Past businesses include forays into fashion, web-development, viral email and plant-based air filters. In 1995, with his cousin, he started and grew the web-developer, SiteWerks, to 60 people doing work for large companies such as Microsoft and sold it to a New York company in 1998. He currently focuses on pushing sustainability into the mainstream through TreeHugger.com, which in 3 short years had become one of the most respected and trafficked environmental sites on the web and was sold to Discovery in August of 2007. Additionally, he owns a product business that sells a New York souvenir he designed a few years ago into 300 stores including MOMA. Graham has a Bachelor of Architecture with distinction from Carleton University in Ottawa and did advanced studies in Industrial Design at E.C.I.A.D, Vancouver. Graham has lived all over the world and his biggest eco-sin is air travel (offset of course). He speaks English, French, German and Spanish and is addicted to squash and kitesurfing.
