About me

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” read the tapestry that hung above my family’s kitchen table during my childhood growing up in Portland, OR. I believe that much of what ends up in the landfill are valuable resources and should be diverted. But it’s more than that. An effective “zero-waste” strategy includes the 4 R’s; reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink. This blog is dedicated to my learning about the materials recovery industry, and how to implement sustainable materials management.

Currently, you can find me in Orlando, FL, where I’m employed with MSW Consultants, as we work towards helping our clients reach their waste diversion goals. My personal skill set is in data science, and my passion is in protecting the environment. I often ponder the questions; “how can we eliminate waste?”, and “how can we make the process more efficient?”

The blog is dedicated to the BIG dream of helping the world become 100% waste-free. With this big goal comes big hardship, but also big happiness, and big accomplishment.
