What do you hope to get from this meet up?

Changes in the customs, habits, and organization of our society is necessary for our culture to continue to flourish. I want to be exposed to as many new ideas as possible and share my own ideas and experiences. Learning and personal growth are critical for a rewarding life, and I've been so busy lately that, sadly, I feel like I've let that fall by the wayside. Hope this will light that fire again.

What gift(s) do you bring to the group?

I am open minded, welcome new ideas, and like to receive feedback on my own through meaningful conversation. I spent time in grad school exploring community resilience, re-education, and the transition movement.

Introduction

I moved to Asheville in May to begin working with a green home builder. For the past 11 years, I was a student and teacher at Virginia Tech. My focus was sustainable construction, engineering, architecture, and urban development.
