The environment. This concept alone drove me to decide that Miami is the place for me. Coming from New Jersey, I really wanted to get away from all the pollution and congestion, but also to learn how to fix these problems for the future.

I had little interest in sustainability until my freshman year when I took Environmental Geology with Dr. Hauer, where I learned about climate change, energy consumption, natural disasters, and other physical processes. Now, almost everything I do is directly related to environmental sustainability in and around Oxford.

I’m the faculty adviser to GreenHawks Media, Miami’s student-run environmental media, and a freelance journalist whose passion is the intersection of the environment and business worlds. I’ve been teaching multimedia journalism at Miami since 2004.

When was the last time you fixed a leak?

When was the last time you fixed a leak? An American home can waste, on average, more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks. Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. That's why WaterSense is promoting Fix a Leak Week from March 15 to 21, 2010, to remind Americans to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks. Soure: U.S. E.P.A.
