"Flying through hyperspace ain't like dustin' crops boy" Han Solo http://www.facebook.com/Matthew.Wilburn.King.PhD I can frequently be found tromping around various parts of the planet. I am an Assistant Professor of Conflict Analysis | Environmental Security at NOVA Southeastern University. I live in Boulder and Fort Lauderdale since finishing my PhD at the University of Cambridge, and conducting extensive fieldwork in Honduras. I returned to Washington DC and resigned from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 2007. My goal was to concentrate on teaching, lecturing, writing, consulting, and creating The LIving GREEN Foundation, focused on creating a global research, expeditions, and education network modeled on Sea Grant and Land Grant College programs in the US, while focusing on developing capacities of smaller organizations operating abroad. The latter effort has required three years of data mining, geotagging, filing for 501(c)3 status, and preparation for the future launch of an educational learning platform that will provide more marginalized organizations, usually operating in the developing world, greater representation, and ease of interaction in cyberspace. We seek to connect consumers in Northern countries, with the places, species, and issues that they care about; and then make it easy for everyone to give, live, and learn all things green through the world's most diversified geographic interface.
