Hello. I'm Tim Querengesser, a communications consultant, public speaker, entrepreneur and award-winning journalist who lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
My writing has recently appeared in The Walrus, CityLab, Alberta Views, The Globe and Mail, the Financial Post, Avenue, Maisonneuve, Alberta Venture and Up Here, to name a few publications. Here's a news story about my national magazine award nominations, too. Most people in Edmonton know me as the former editor of Metro, or the current editor of The Yards.
One of the greatest things I've ever done was live and work in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia for a year. Here are a few stories I wrote, while there, for the Globe and Mail, the Ottawa Citizen and The Yukon News.
At the moment I'm writing a memoir about car dependency and I just finished a writing residency at the Banff Centre as part of that. My book is partly inspired by my work with The Edmonton Wayfinding Society, a group I founded in 2013 to push for a more walkable city. Here's a story the Edmonton Journal wrote about that work.
