Derek Shannon has been passionate about climate since high school debates about global warming in his hometown of Minot, North Dakota.  After studying geobiology and looking for life on Mars at Caltech and USC, he helped advance mass transit technology that would eliminate both traffic and emissions.  In 2010 he moved from California to New Jersey to support a private start-up’s fusion research effort, trying to harness the ultimate clean energy source as a way to solve global energy poverty and climate change.  Now working to launch a new cancer drug, he hopes the efforts of Footprint to Wings will unlock the power of competition to find new solutions, leading to a future where humanity soars over our stumbling blocks.
