Born in the early 1960s, Richard Eisenberg grew up in the age of the Apollo program and spent his youth following his father's notions of Environmental happenings going on in the Northeast United States. In 1969 the Cuyahoga River Fire captured Rich's attention; his understanding that water puts out a fire, how can fire exist in or on-top of the water? This question got Rich on a path of curiosity and Environmental awareness at a very early age.
