Hi! I’m Eden, proudly from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I want to be a maker when I grow up. I believe passion prevails.
I’m building the SunSaluter, an intuitive, gravity-powered device that takes inspiration from ancient water clocks to help solar panels follow the sun and collect up to 40% more electricity, while providing clean water, in off-grid or underdeveloped parts of the world.
I study Mechanical Engineering at Princeton University, where I am pursuing minors (certificates) in Applications in Computing, and Robotics and Intelligent Systems. In the summer of 2013, I apprenticed in web development at the Software Craftsmanship Guild.
I cox for the Princeton varsity lightweight women’s rowing team. In 2012, I led Rowing Canada Aviron’s senior women’s development team of Olympic hopefuls to two gold medals at the 2012 Henley Royal and Holland Beker Regattas, against the German, French, Dutch, Australian and British national teams.
I advocate for choosing your own unconventional life path, ever since I discovered mine as one of the inaugural 2011 Thiel Fellows when I took two years off from college.
