Autumn is a native Texan and KDB’s newest Dentonite. She is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma (Boomer!) where she studied Environmental Sustainability. KDB’s mission resonates with her because she’s always felt a connection to the natural world, and she believes it’s our personal responsibility to leave it better than we found it.

Renzo Villamero, Program Intern
Renzo was born in the Philippines and then moved to Sugar Land, TX where he spent most of his childhood growing up. He is now currently a senior at the University of North Texas and is majoring in geography and minoring in anthropology. His career interests are in human and environmental interactions and community and urban development. He hopes to be able to continuously improve the way people and the environment live and interact with each other to create a better and healthier world. Renzo always has a great time cooking, sleeping, trying new foods, spending time with his cat, and online window shopping. Some random facts about him are that he played the flute in high school and sometimes even now, he was on a dance team for three years at UNT, and in general loves to try new things.
