Favian Mendez Rodriguez

Favian is a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he majors in Advertising and Public Relations and minors in Environmental Studies and Spanish. Originally from Toppenish, WA, Favian’s family moved to Crete, NE where he spent most of his life. Growing up, he has always had an interest in science and astronomy. As he continued his studies at UNL, he grew a great passion for the environment, sustainable practices, and drone applications. He wants organizations and companies that contribute to the greater good to gain more recognition and support. He hopes that the work he helps create can bring a bigger audience for the time-lapse project to showcase the importance of work the people are doing to conserve our waterways.
