About Me
- I am a student at Humboldt State University, with a major in Environmental Science Policy and a minor in Native American Studies. I often volunteer at the Campus Center for Appropriate Technologies (CCAT). I am also a member of both the Humboldt Circus and the Humboldt Juggling Society on campus and usually try to incorporate environmental messages into circus acts in the hope that laughter can be an effective medium in inspiring action and making the problems seem less insurmountable. At the very least, it can keep us optimistic for the future.
 Interests in Appropriate Technology
- To promote living differently, especially in local communities, where, I think, we do and will see the true changes happen most effectively
- Activism to help increase access to appropriate technologies and decrease use of destructive technologies in our lives.
- Preservation of the natural world through understanding that we are a fundamental, inextricable part of it ~ not separate.
- Sharing interest in hands-on projects in a world increasingly dependent upon and lost in virtual life
