Get to Know a Grad!

Editor's Note: This is the second installment of the semi-regular Get to Know a Grad feature! Enjoy!

Name: Danny Moloney

Hometown: Olympia, WA

Undergraduate University/Degree:  Ecology, The Evergreen State College

What brought you to IslandWood?  I wanted to learn how to be a phenomenal educator that worked to empower youth and protect the environment.

What is your favorite thing about IslandWood so far?
  The acres and acres of wild trails and the wildlife. Oh, I love the teams course too!

What is your favorite thing about Bainbridge Island/Seattle/The Puget Sound so far?
  I love riding the ferry and being near a large salty body of water.  The views of the Cascade and Olympic ranges are out of this world as well.

Who would you want to play you in the movie version of your life?
Johnny Depp or maybe Meg Ryan.

Quick! Someone gave you 100 bagazillion dollars! What do you do with it?  Protect wildlands, help underprivileged groups of people get the housing, food and education that they deserve, and buy a horse ranch.

Who do you most admire and why?  One person I admire is Jane Goodall for continuing to keep hope despite all she has seen that could easily push her to give up on her work and live in hopelessness.  There are thousands more people that I admire though.  I admire the kids that come to IslandWood. They are pretty remarkable.

What do you think you might do after IslandWood?  I would like to work at an outdoor environmental education center.
