About Let's Talk Energy

Meet the Team


Jason is the manager of the Let’s Talk Energy initiative. He has worked in museums for more than 15 years as a guide, educator, interpretative planner, and project manager.

Jason is naturally curious and loves learning, so working in a museum setting is a wonderful place for him. Working on the Let’s Talk Energy project has been an amazing experience. Energy is such an interesting topic that has many elements and off-shoots including economy, environment, sustainability, development, technology, and politics, that it continues to fascinate Jason!

When not at work, Jason likes to canoe and hike in the woods around the Ottawa/Gatineau area. He is an avid reader and enthusiastic board game player, and loves to cook for friends and family.


Shane is a passionate advocate for social and environmental justice and has been educating people in Canada about issues affecting them and their environments for nearly a decade. He has focused on connecting people with topics including the social determinants of health, Canadian health policy, and more recently, Energy and Climate Change.

In his current role with Let’s Talk Energy, Shane favours educational models that explore energy and climate change as broad, dynamic and often challenging topics. Shane attended the University of Waterloo as an Undergraduate in Environment and Resource studies and is also an accomplished cook and recipe developer, these days just for fun!


Jiana is the Program Assistant at Let's Talk Energy and is very interested in sustainability and clean tech. She manages the social media platforms and interacts with the public through outreach programs. Every day, Jiana gets to learn more and connect with people on the future of sustainability and green energy.

Jiana is currently in her fourth year studying Marketing at the University of Ottawa. Raised in Ottawa but born in the Philippines, who knows if she’ll ever get used to Canadian winters. In her free time, she enjoys reading, playing guitar, hanging out with friends, and playing with her dog.
