My name is Sean DeSilva I am a second year student at Humboldt State University, majoring in Environmental Resource Engineering. This will be my second bacholor's degree my first being in Photography with a minor in Art History for Rhode Island College. It was my love for photography that first sparked my interest in Environmental Engineering. I found that most of my work dealt with the interaction between humans and the environment. I was pointing out the ways in which humans were effecting and using nature without regard for how these interaction could be less harmful to the surroundings. It was that idea that lead me in studying engineering, "How could I reduce the impact of humans on the environment". My most recent work was for Sonoma County Water Agency in creek maintainence and flood control, this has given me a good idea of how I can have a positive influence on the environment while helping the community.
