About Me[edit | edit source]
Name: Eric Recchia
I'm a (super-duper) junior at Humboldt State University and I am majoring in Economics, concentrating specifically in areas of local and sustainable economic systems. I enjoy being outdoors, and I try to spend most of my free time outside doing something fun (and low impact), like cycling, disc golf, rock climbing, backpacking, and kayaking. I'm very interested in working on developing a personal spiritual connection with Nature. I have a physical science background, having previously majored at different times in Physics, Mechanical Engineering, and Environmental Science.
