Dave WittenbornDateline: Discussions For A Healthy Earth
First Published: Aug 26, 2010 / Last Published: Sep 21, 2010
Dave Wittenborn spent the first 20 years of his "career" wearing a suit and tie, and working on a Wall Street trading desk. All the while, lurking in his heart was a science nerd dreaming of being in the mountains and the forest. Dave finally decided that he had "enough" about 10 years ago, and walked away. He now lives simply, in the mountains of Washington State, and devotes his energy and focus to the study of science, nature, and things that make a positive difference, starting with environmental and health-related issues. Dave has always loved to write, and started a blog to write about things that are important to all of us. He is an active and accomplished wilderness backpacker, camper, and photographer. David also enjoys astronomy, philosophy, and is a long-time student and teacher of martial arts.
