Hello, my name is Thomas, I’m an English and Environmental Studies double major. Starting with that feels generic to me, but it is perhaps as good a place as any. I’ve grown up with stories and nature my entire life. Spending much of my time in a book or hiking boots. I grew up in southern Ohio until my mid-teen’s when I moved up to Delaware county. Deepening my understanding of how people live and interact with the natural world is something I’m hoping to get out of this class. In order to solve many of the problems we face as a society and human beings I think this isn’t just important knowledge but necessary.
