Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I have joined in with the Lights Out - Energy Quantification group for a start, but I am interested in becoming involved with several other groups as well.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I realize that one way or another, the human race is in for some interesting changes, to say the least. It is never too soon to think about how we are going to deal with life in the future.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am excited about using my background in mechanical engineering, carpentry, and vehicle design to work with others in finding alternative methods for maintaining systems related to these fields. I am equally excited about the opportunity to learn more about the work of others in areas that I do not have expertise.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Everson
