Are you looking for an engaging speaker who will demonstrate the exciting possibilities of unconventional problem solving? Let me tell your group about creating beautiful, practical architecture hidden under the ground!

Do you want a speaker to offer a different perspective on energy conservation? Let me explain how buildings are much bigger fossil fuel guzzlers than SUVs, and how earth-integrated architecture can reduce energy consumption and expense without compromising on comfort or beauty.
