Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Had a full scholarship to the University of Maryland to study music.
Felt like the school was too big for him, did a transfer program at the University of Montana.
Got "bit by the bug" while flying over the Midwest, realized that humans rule the planet, have a duty to protect it.
Knew he couldn't just take an environmental science class and move on, he had to dedicate his life to this.
Found a group of people who felt the same, they decided they wanted to found an "eco-village."
Started Dancing Rabbit-all homes built with alternative materials, powered by renewable energy, grow and consume organic produce.
Wishes he could've cloned himself: part of him could've stayed at Dancing Rabbit forever, part of him had always wanted to live in New York.
Moved to New York, got to enjoy city life, simultaneously help the environment on a large scale by making NYU more sustainable.
