So after graduating in 1992, he moved to Greenville, where he spent 10 years as a product development engineer, designing molds for all kinds of tires.“I was kind of a spoiled brat there,” he said.But sustainability isn’t the center of my life, spirituality is, and I’m open to living in any way, anywhere the universe calls me.
