Name: Devan Hemmings Born: May 29, 1983

Self Summery: I graduated from Cal Poly Humboldt in 2011 with a degree in Natural Resources Planning and Interpretation (NRPI) with a concentration in Appropriate technology[1]. Through the "individual design" degree option of NRPI I was able to concentrate my studies towards the technological aspect of sustainability. To see more about my academic pursuits, read my proposal to the Natural Resources Department to design my own curriculum:appropriate design.doc. After taking a break from my studies and traveling around the U.S, In early 2013 I spent time in Taos, New Mexico learning about and building Earthships through the Earthship Biotecture[2] Academy and continued my interest by volunteering at an Earthship build in Big Sky, Montana. Now as 2013 is coming to a close and the new year approaching, I am planning my next move to affect positive change in the community and promote sustainable/appropriate technologies.
