Sustainability has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I unintentionally earned my PhD in environmental engineering, with a focus on sustainability and ecological engineering principles.

It’s through the lens of sustainability that I’m inspired to seek out more creative solutions that optimize health, wealth, and happiness. When I’m not engineering, teaching, or writing I enjoy spending time outdoors, living car-free, and building an off-grid home and homestead.

I write about sustainability over at Unconventional Sustainability and recently published my first book, titled The Unconventional Guide to Sustainable Happiness.
