How I Perceive Myself[edit]

My parents named my Teri Lynn, and I inherited my father's last name, Grunthaner. That is useful to know for compartmentalization in your mind, but how much does it really matter? A nose by any other name would still smell... :D

So why not get right down to it: The current purpose that I've assigned my life is getting to know the world through knowing myself, and getting to know myself through knowing the world (and visa-versa from the worlds' perspective:). Living, learning, and loving every sensation and experience is my ideal method, but it takes much practice. I'll help you as you help me. <3

My Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit]

  • How it necessitates a creative, bottom-up, collaborative approach to problem-solving and asset-building
  • The individual and collective empowerment derived from creating capital to meet communal needs
  • It's contribution to the establishment of economic, social, and ecologic sustainability and justice

My Experience in Appropriate Technology[edit]

  • Co-created a bike trailer out of recycled materials
  • Helping manage a Community Currency
  • Co-designing and constructing an Umbrella Solar Cooker
