Hello, Duckie! Masks

The coronavirus pandemic has turned our lives upside down. Over the past year I have made and donated hundreds of masks through (while also being the Technical Lead for) Chicago Mask Makers. While the mask supply has rebounded, I’ve always felt most available masks were poorly designed and don’t keep people safe. I’m also deeply concerned about the pandemic’s economic impact on our communities. In response, I’ve started Hello, Duckie! Learn how you can purchase masks to keep yourself safe AND support our local food pantry at the same time!

Think Biomimicry

Come on a journey with me as I explore in my blog what biomimicry might mean for you, how to incorporate biomimicry thinking into a variety of topics, generate ideas for further exploration and innovation, and highlight incredible biological strategies right outside your door. Also explore a list of biomimicry resources, and discover the beauty outside with rotating collections of my nature photography. I encourage your comments and contributions to future topics and resources. Together we can move the world to Think Biomimicry.
