About me

Industry Engineering
Occupation student, thinker, dreamer
Introduction I'm in the process of learning how to fit idealism and energy into a world steeped with reality. I find a lot of hope in people that I've met and stories that I've heard. I believe that it is possible for individuals, communities, nations to realize that it is only ourselves that have the power to make change and create a more just, loving, compassionate, real, and ecologically sustainable world. My first big undertaking along that journey has been working to support a community water system in a tiny rainforest comunity in Ecuador. The water system is (mostly) working now and I'm just beginning to figure out how to help them share their knowledge and train other communities.
Interests being the change I wish to see in the world, learning and speaking languages (Spanish, Kichwa, Lakota), cooking, reading, watching movies, walking, bicycling
