Jake is leveraging the emerging field of biomimicry to build on his experiences in the United States and abroad. This year, he is designing his education with the goal to facilitate collaboration among experts in biomimicry—technical designers and scientists—to design and implement social and environmental change. This is part of his vision to close the gap between ‘human-made’ and ‘organic’ as he creates a life centered around innovation inspired by nature. Jake is doing this because he believes that re-aligning humanity with nature is key to solving our planet’s biggest challenges. With a background in strategic communication and education, he’s making new connections between business, learning, and nature that are deeply sustainable and apply to the products we buy, the processes we employ, and the systems we operate. For a good time, ask him about spider webs, ecosystems, or anything fungi-related.
