I am passionate about:
liberating* others through design. *=freeing people from whatever is holding them back from being their best
A little known fact about me is:
I'm really good at winning radio contests. (Even the ones not on the radio) One time, a radio station just handed me tickets.
Show my name on the attendees list for events I am attending:
Detroit, MI, USA
"Design like a kid."
I love Ellen, cows and coffee (in that exact order).
My dream is to design sustainable solutions for the 3rd world...(and I will).
I recently started my own small business, Inkcourage. (www.inkcourage.org)
NDEF Cameroon Yes! Thank you for your ideas! In Tanzania, they would plant one tree for each student, and when the student graduates, they sell the lumber from the grown tree and give it to the student!
I think it could also benefit if they grow their own food while being a part of this program! It would help them become sustainable!
I envision someone on the ground, I would have to know exactly how each system works in each country, but working with individuals to find out their family needs, as well as relocation abilities before starting. Now that I'm thinking, maybe there are easier ways to teach "skills" through boxes or simple training in each of their areas that they can travel and sell on their own! I'll keep thinking!
