My name is Nick Rogers and i am currently a freshaman at Humboldt State pursuing a major in Environmental Resources Engineering. I come from a small town at the northern most point of Los Angeles county called Agoura Hills which is tucked behind the Santa Monica Mountains. I do not hold much experience in the field of engineering but i am inspired to become a part of it since i come from an area that has been redesigned by man to have an entirely different environment than nature intended for it to have. Los Angeles is meant to be mostly desert and orange groves, but by creating water transportation methods, the area has been able to artificially thrive for decades at the expense of other environments. One day, i hope to gain my masters in ERE and help to create sustainable energy resources through my own firm.
