In my humble opinion, humanity is facing borderline impossible environmental challenges. Our era depicts the fastest decline of biodiversity and multifaceted damage to nature, yet there is hope with technical advancement and positive progression stories led by incredible men, women, and children pushing civilizations and governments forward towards betterment.

My family for many generations has been environmentally conscious. We have a long advocated for protections of sensitive lands, urging others to stand up in defense of equal footing with plants and animals, and directly tackled state governments like Wisconsin's environmental policies. Our hands-on work consists of reintroduction of native species, monitoring the health of freshwater habitats, renewable resources, and preserving our wilderness of nocturnal species. We drive initiatives through tech innovation and the pioneering of scientific data applications.

One direct impact is our family's Solar System installed in 2022. Click here to check out this exciting Solar project.
