Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I
am a member of BEN – Biomimicry Education Network – and a curator
of educational resources at BEN. I am the author of the book
Biomimicry with Theo & Tuva: Nature spotting inspires wild ideas.
In 2015, I completed a course in Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design
Methodology at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
