I’m a mechanical engineer and semi-homesteader. I’m passionate about self-reliance, the environment and creating awesome things while building community connections and meeting new people. I have experience with zero waste, recycling, reuse, tackling food waste/preserving, mending and fixing things. I also like to build things like robots and picnic tables. I enjoy gardening and cooking vegetarian food. I work in the 3D printing field, and I’m also an entrepreneur trying to get an app off the ground.
