About Kevin Jones / Notepaths

I’m a project manager and design manager with a focus on maritime sustainability and resilience. I am passionate about helping ports to reduce their environmental impacts, to mitigate the impacts of climate change, and to create positive societal impact.

As a writer, I promote maritime and marine issues, promote a circular economy to encourage more responsible use of resources. I believe in affordable sustainable solutions for all, and I write to further this cause. I help individuals to understand complex environmental issues, to understand their place in the global ecosystem, and to move from concern to action.

I’m a lifelong learner and approach life with exploration and curiosity. Aside from sustainability, I write about life in the Westcountry, parenthood, travel, stationery, cultural awareness, and more.

Why Notepaths?

I wanted a user name that communicated my loves of travel, stationery, and learning and discovery.

In a hotel lobby in Mumbai, I read a letter in a travel magazine that espoused that travellers should be “lovers of the footnotes and the footpaths”. I loved this sentiment, but thought that (a) it sounded better the other way around (the footpaths and the footnotes), (b) “footpaths” captured my love of travel, (c) “footnotes” captured learning and discovery, and (d) if I combined elements of both it could sound sort of like “notepads”, thus capturing stationery.
