I love Environmental Science because it provides a framework to help us navigate living in a way that respects our community, our surroundings, and ourselves.About me:
I am a former Marine and spent the majority of my tour of duty overseas, protecting U.S. embassies.
Aside from my bachelor's degree in Physics, I have also earned a master's degree in sustainable systems.
My lovely wife, Jenny, and I have been married for 20 years, and we have two wonderful sons, Gabriel and Owen.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy being outdoors, quilting, and reading.
I tweet! You can follow me at @benfortel.
