Rich Altherr - President and Owner

Combining over 20 years of automotive engineering experience with a Biomimciry Specialist certification through Biomimicry 3.8 and a Biomimicry Graduate Certificate from Arizona State University, Rich  inspires automotive and mechanical engineers to incorporate the 3.8+ billion years of nature's genius into future sustainable and regenerative engineering designs.  These innovation methods are critical to the emerging circular economy.

Rich is also the founder of the local organization Biomimicry Detroit--a community of people practicing, studying, and/or interested in the field of biomimicry or biomimetics. Biomimicry Detroit inspires (re)connection with nature, intellectual education, civic collaboration, and social activities in the Detroit-metro Michigan area.
