PErspective: GAbriel Killian

He has the meaningful career he was looking for, but he didn't get lucky. It all comes down to choice. 

Gabriel Killian is a sustainability and business consultant who lives in Denton, Texas. He hosts a podcast called Craft Conversations and is the creator of iDentonfy, a rewards program that encourages people to shop locally. He also recently became the chief business development officer for Instant Local, an Austin-based app that connects people with local businesses. 

So, how did a business-savvy sustainability nerd get here, doing what he cares about? It's actually pretty simple.
