DR. jeff wilson aka professor dumpster
Jeff Wilson is a startup entrepreneur and academic based out of New York City, Austin and Marfa. Wilson founded the award-winning micro housing company Kasita, which was named one of Inc’s 25 most disruptive companies in the World (alongside SoFi and Hyperloop). Formerly, Dr. Wilson was a Professor and Dean also known as ‘Professor Dumpster’. He lived in a 33 sq. ft. modified trash dumpster for a year as part of a minimalist living and housing experiment. Wilson’s work on startups, sustainability, minimalism, and social experimentation has been featured in Forbes, The Atlantic, NY Times, and The Washington Post. Beyond startups and dumpster diving, Professor Dumpster enjoys traveling - in another experiment he took a girl he met online for a whirlwind date across seven countries in 21 days - with only the clothes on his their backs (now a book and soon to be a Hollywood movie).
