I believe we can positively affect our community and ecosystem by observing natural systems and replicate what nature teaches us in a beneficial multifunction design. This can be from teaching children to restoring a watershed. This is my passion in life, seeking patterns in nature and replicating them while using as few resources
as possible and in turn benefiting all.
