I have been invited to attend the Schmiede12 Festival Of Ideas in Hallein, Austria in early September 2012 to share my work on Ocean University and ARIA.
I participated in the Falling Walls Lab 2011 and presented MATTERNET as part of the 2011 Falling Walls Conference in Berlin, Germany.
I participated in Autodesk's IDEAS, an exclusive gathering of thought leaders for the purpose of exploring design—as a systematic approach to problem-solving and innovation, encompassing form, function, and performance—and its impact on corporate and societal success.
Ocean is a design collaborative at Sea. In this talk at Harvard, I spoke about the plan, how we are structuring the organization and the initiatives we are undertaking, such as IamOcean.org
My talk focused on a project that I was part of in Ecuador through my semester aboard The Scholar Ship. The academic week in Ecuador was supported by UNICEF and UNDP.
My seven years at Western during my Bachelor and Master's I heavily invested in my passion: interconnecting people. I focused in international work and we did wonderful things.
