I am an Environmental Science student at Humboldt State University and I am a Studio Art minor. I have many interests and those are just two of the subjects I am passionate about. Additionally, I love; working with wildlife, building things, baking, biking, hiking, kayaking, bird watching, badminton, yoga, video games, reading a good book, and just being outdoors.

Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

Some of my interests in Appropriate Tech are:

  • Learning how to live more sustainably on a day to day basis.
  • Both altering and creating the world we live in.
  • Learning how to build technologies that help to minimize human impact on our resources like, rainwater catchment systems, greywater systems, passive/active solar energies, and water efficient gardens.
  • Finding out how Appropriate Tech can be cost effective.
  • Finding easy ways to incorporate it into people's lives.

My experience in Appropriate Technology comes from:

  • Working at the Humboldt State University Campus Center of Appropriate Technology
  • Having explored the wide array of Appropriate Tech in Humboldt County in general (CCAT, Bayside Park Farm, etc.)
  • Having learned about it at Humboldt State University.
