I am a Carbon and Sustainable Energy Consultant who works with clients to maximize profitability through effective utilization of natural resources and the development of ground-breaking greenhouse gas emission reduction and energy efficiency solutions.

Since 2009, my independent consulting accomplishments include:

  • 130 Individual Projects
  • $2 Million in Total Energy Grants Awarded
  • 9 Institutional Climate, Energy & Sustainability Plans
  • More than 12 Million Total Square Feet of Facility Space Audited

Throughout these projects and my larger career, I have developed an extensive knowledge of architecture, construction, urban planning, energy, university sustainability development, and greenhouse gas emission reduction. For more information see a complete list of my projects and client testimonials.

My undergraduate education was in Sustainable Architecture and History, and I hold a Master’s Degree in Environmental and Energy Planning from the University of Cincinnati. During this time, I have developed a unique vision of the greenhouse gas reduction strategies and energy efficiency synergies possible through innovative business, infrastructural, financial, policy, and community organizing strategies.

Previous Experience

Before launching Independent Energies, LLC, I was a Carbon Consultant with Camco International’s North American division. In this role, I managed the greenhouse gas emissions assessment of the 2008 Democratic National Convention. During my time at Camco, I also participated in a diverse range of roles as a project, IT, business development, administration, marketing and finance consultant.

Projects I worked on included:

  • production of a carbon reduction guide for the U.S. National Pork Board;
  • development of an emissions assessment and reduction plan for South Carolina’s publicly-owned school bus fleet;
  • creation of a travel and event greenhouse gas emissions calculator for the City of Denver; and
  • the design of a complex financial model that determined the net present value of individual carbon development assets amortized over the 10 year life of the project.

Prior to my work with Camco, I pursued a variety of experiences related to sustainability. While studying architecture at the University of Kentucky, I designed and in some cases helped to build a number of projects, including houses, playgrounds, community spaces, schools and churches. During my time at the University of Cincinnati I worked as the University’s first Energy Conservation Coordinator. Prior to that, I owned and operated a business providing floor plans and 3D building animation services to real estate companies in New York City.
