Whenever I'd go camping with my dad as a kid, he would always end each trip with the same mantra: "Make sure to leave the campsite better than you found it."
My father's words became my life philosophy, and what eventually led me to my interest in the circular economy. I want to leave things better than I found it.
In 2017, following the birth of my daughter, this desire only became more intense and more tangible: I want to leave a better planet for her.
Currently, I live in Springfield, Oregon, along with my wife and our daughter.
