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.

Bundle Up and Turn Down the Thermostat

Consider putting a few extra layers on and bundling up in a blanket rather than turning up your heat. Turning your heat down 10-15 degrees while you are not home for about 8 hours each day can save 5-15% on your energy bill. Think about how much you can help your wallet and the environment by putting on another sweater. http://www.energysavers.gov/your_home/space_heating_cooling/index.cfm/mytopic=12720
