Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Currently not at all, and I'm signing up in the hopes of changing this.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm interested because I'm concerned about the impact my daily actions and decisions have on the natural environment as a whole. I think that large scale changes are necessary but that the most important initial step is changing perceptions and assumptions about comfort, convenience, environmentalism, our societal institutions, cultural norms, and our goals as individuals and as a society. However, I feel that this needs to be coupled with action and decisive steps and I am drawn to the philosophy of making a difference by beginning at home with small but noticeable steps.
I have been increasingly concerned about the problems with our food supply, in terms of its impact on natural resources, our disconnection from it, and the healthfulness of industrialized food. As we must eat every day, I am no longer content with allowing the production of my sustenance to be a mysterious process undertaken behind closed doors without any of my knowledge or input.
I think that the only way to bring about large scale change is to take the actions that you wish to see other people take.
I hope to be a part of a group that is able to achieve tangible results in showing how sustainable alternatives can be made possible and accessible to everyone.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I have a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science. I worked in the conservation field for about two years as a biological field technician working with wildlife.
I operate a simple and portable home recording studio which I can use to produce and engineer the recording of public service announcements, lectures, interviews, etc. I can write and arrange musical pieces for any combination of instruments (i.e. whatever people in the community are capable of playing) and I can write jingles and theme songs (for cottage industries for example).
Aside from this I possess deep unwavering strength in my convictions and a strong desire to make my lifestyle comply with my beliefs.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I have boundless energy and a great deal of time to devote. Aside from making changes in my own lifestyle and consumption patterns I think the application of this energy would be the greatest way in which I can be helpful.
I think I can write convincing prose and I would be honored to contribute to a newsletter or other informative type of publication if there was a need for it and I had the knowledge.

Welcome, Geoff!

Love your background, talents and enthusiasm. We need 'em all.
Do me a favor and check out Transition Westminster / Arvada / Broomfield (it's one of the groups), and consider joining that group (aka "TWAB"). There's a ton of stuff going on, not only in TWAB but all over this Ning site. I'm working on a Quick Start guide for the Ning site, let me know if you'd like a Beta copy. Hope to see you around!
