Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Inspired by the old Irish saying, "Don't die with your music still in you."
Grew up in California with "hippie" parents, vaguely aware of environmental issues.
Moved to Japan with his girlfriend and started writing about environmental issues at an English-speaking magazine.
Saw disastrous environmental crises firsthand in Asia; says his worldview was forever changed.
Highly recommends that young people travel to different parts of the world, gain as many perspectives as possible.
After moving back to the U.S., got tired of writing about problems instead of actively working to fix them.
Took his own road trip to find the people and projects that had potential to change the world for the better.
Started Worldchanging blog to showcase these innovations; eventually became the second-largest sustainability site on the Web.
