On Wednesday, he joined some of us “EcoDreamers” for  a lunchtime conversation about the work, what it means, why it matters, and about how he is bringing it to the world.

    I wanted to let you know that I will be leaving class early (5:00pm) today due to the fact I have to watch my sister tonight because my stepdad is going to a demolition in San Diego for his command.
