Maharishi University of Management alumnus Michael Dearborn has always been interested in design. When he became a student in the Sustainable Living program at MUM, he discovered that his passion was sustainable design. For his senior project, he designed algae photobioreactors, and helped design the MUM biodiesel system and numerous other ecomachines.

Michael now handles both product and graphic design for Portapure, a Chicago-based company manufacturing portable water filtration devices. Michael has refined the design for the company's main product, a portable 5-gallon water filtration backpack that filters out microbes, chemicals, and sediment, providing drinking water in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and other countries where a shortage of clean running water is an issue.

''I wouldn't have gotten where I am now without the Sustainable Living program,'' Michael says. In addition, ''MUM attracts a community of students that is right for innovation and creativity, which is what made me go into this field.''
