Additional Information for your BIO Summary

Ulysses has been fortunate to have had an exciting and diverse career in environmental consulting.  However, his passion has always been with teaching and he looks forward to the opportunity to share his knowledge and experiences (successes and failures) with the students at Conestoga College.

Ulysses is also rediscovering his inner "environmentalist". So do not be surprised if you find him building a solar collector, designing a bird-friendly wind-turbine, or hugging a tree.
