Who am I?
I’m a mathematical biologist/neuroscientist in my 20s living in Pittsburgh with my cat, my plants, my books, and my first friend from college. I work for Facebook Reality Labs as a data technician, and gosh do I love my job. I’m lucky enough to have a fantastic job, a fantastic home, and fantastic beings to share my life with. And, to soon be starting a certificate in sustainable development from MIT.
What’s the name mean?
We don’t live in caves anymore. A significant percentage of the human population lives in cities, especially along the coasts – and those coasts are in danger, along with the rest of this planet. Raised at the beach and a fan of living things from mantises to possums, I want to keep my city life but make it more eco-friendly. The city is my habitat, and I want to improve and protect it.
What kind of content can I find here?
The connection between all of the content you’ll find here is sustainability – a meaningless buzz word, I know. Basically I’ll be blogging about living in ways that are healthy for me and the world around me while building a life I love to live, which for me includes caring for my plants and pets, making art, learning, playing the Switch, and lots more.
How do I navigate the site?
Well, for now, you just type the site into your search bar and the latest posts will pop up. As time goes on and I get more settled into using the site, I’ll be adding two pages: a Designs page and a Portfolio page. More on those coming soon!
In the meantime, thanks for taking a minute to check Urban Habitat out – I hope you’ll stop by again!
