I am an academic who teaches college writing. My research interests vary, but I am especially interested in contemporary social problems and solutions. Recently, I’ve focused on triple bottom line accounting in for- and non-profits because my ultimate goal is to start and manage a sustainable community. After learning about sustainable living over the last several years, I’ve just committed myself to incorporating one sustainable practice per week into my life. I created this blog to document my progress and to discuss other interesting contemporary issues.
