Madison's profile picture




My name is Madison Whitlow-Hewett, I'm currently enrolled in the Environmental Resource Engineering program at Humboldt State University. I started my higher education career in Sweden at Nordens folkhögskola Biskops-Arnö, studying natural medicine from 2012-2013. After leaving Sweden I transitioned to College of the Redwoods from 2013-2016, and finally transferred to Humboldt State in the Fall of 2016. I'm interested in the scientific field of biomimicry and hope to one day synthesize society and nature with modern green technology.

Being a bartender I regularly work events, including SnowGlobe music festival in Lake Tahoe, CA. Spending generous amounts of time in event environments has allowed me to observe the needs of the general public and how much waste is produced in the industry. Through my observations I'd like to design zero-waste high-tech alternatives for the festival industry to minimize the impacts and maximize the overall experience for festival goers.
