More about this expert:
I relocated from Houston, Texas to Helsinki in 2009 to study environmental engineering in a university where the curriculum would be unaffected by lobbyist money and the prevailing belief that destroying the natural environment is the only way to make money-- because it's not! I believe very strongly that a modern society and a healthy environment are not mutually exclusive. I'm now an environmental engineer and a partner in a small business that offers environmental consulting, life cycle assessment, and environmental education games. I one day would like to travel back to the United States and engage Native American tribal councils and communities to develop renewable energy resources. I am interested also in water resources, remediation projects, and environmental policy (both public and corporate).
