My name is Stefan.
Being from the southern US you come in close contact with various wildlife in the swamp which has bred in me a love for nature. Unfortunately, you come in contact with the various pollutants which has also bred a need to be sustainable. My path to appropriate technology is a personal one.
I don’t have formal background. I am a mechanic/microsolderer by trade and a maker/DIYer by hobby.
My interests include:
Alternative Building Materials
Design for Sustainability
Low Cost energy storage (hydro, compressed air)
Low Tech Computer Networking
Open Source Medical Devices
Solar Technology (PV, Thermoelectricity, passive solar)
