Steve Mouzon is an architect, urbanist, author, blogger, and photographer based in Tuscaloosa. He co-founded the Urban Guild, which was instrumental in the creation of the Katrina Cottages initiative. The Guild is the nexus of Project:SmartDwelling, which works to redefine the house to be much smaller and more sustainable.

Steve began the Original Green initiative, with the goal of recovering and advancing patterns of sustainability that kept humanity alive until the Thermostat Age and the emergence of Gizmo Green. Steve’s book, the Original Green, frames sustainability in common-sense, plain-spoken terms.

Steve speaks regularly across the US and abroad on sustainability issues. He blogs on Original Green Stories, Useful Stuff, and We Do This Because... He also posts to the Original Green Twitter stream.
