Philip Taylor, Ph.D. is executive director of Mad Agriculture, which he co-founded with his life partner, Nicole Brinks, to create a culture that loves and restores our relationship to the land, sea and one another. Our work spans the story, community and practice of creating a beautiful food system. Among our programs, we help develop holistic carbon farm plans with ranchers and farmers to help producers transition to a regenerative economy by providing financial and technical assistance, as well as access to new markets. Philip is a global ecologist that specializes in ecosystem and soil carbon cycling. He teaches the Future of Food as an adjunct professor at CU Boulder. He has international work experience in both private and public sectors, and has led research and outreach campaigns throughout Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, including an exploratory private equity fund for accelerating renewable energy in the global south.
