WHAT’S A PLACE YOU LOVE IN THE MIDWEST?

One of my favorite places in the Midwest in the Mississippi River. Growing up in the Quad Cities, I spent my summers swimming, tubing and boating on the Mississippi river. Now that I live in Chicago, I love having access to the Lakefront trail. I enjoy walking, biking and relaxing with friends by the lakefront.

WHAT DRIVES YOU TO DO THIS WORK?

My Dad, an eagle scout, instilled in me to always leave a place better than you found it. I believe we all have a moral obligation to protect, conserve and preserve the earth for not only our generation but for future generations to come. Knowing that my work is part of a larger initiative keeps me motivated.
