My name is Kelby Newman, I am a Utah native. I have loved building and design from a very young age. It started with HGTV and DIY Network. This interest progressed to me building furniture and doing any DIYs around my house. As I grew older I also began to develop an interest in the environment. I knew that one day I wanted to integrate my love for both together. I feel extremely lucky to have been given that opportunity with the Solar Decathlon team.
