minor in environmental studies and sustainability. Nathan is originally from Grand Rapids, MI, but moved to Kalamazoo, MI, in 2015 to attend college. He currently works as a tutor in the Kalamazoo high schools and at an architectural engineering firm as an intern. Nathan hopes to one day work in the renewable energy field researching and creating more efficient sources of energy.

Nathan is an active member of the sunseeker team at WMU which is a team of students that come together to build a solar powered race car. Through this club he has learned how to solder and incase solar panels, work with PCB boards, and work within a team. Nathan is also on the executive board of the Innovation club at WMU which he helped to start. The innovation club strives to get students excited about learning and giving hands on experience. Nathan is also apart of the math club and financial board at his church. He volunteers with Disabeled Students Services on his campus, driving physically disabled students from class to class. He also volunteers with Drive Safe Kalamazoo, giving safe rides home to students on the weekends. Nathan is also a memeber of the Lee Honors College and WMU. Outside of school he enjoys creating lasting relationships, being with friends, and experimenting with his arduino. Nathan has two younger sisters in high school, four dogs, and two cats, which were all left at his parents house (thank goodness).

Nathan has always been very passionate about leadership and communication. He strives to merge these passions with his interest in the natural environment to better educate people on the impacts of climate change. He plans to do this through the Innovation Club on his campus, holding speakers, siminars, workshops, and pop-up classes. He hope University Innovation Fellows will help him along this path.
