So glad you found this page!

I am a passionate advocate of green buildings, and I care deeply about making smarter choices in life, balancing choices to benefit “everyone, the environment, and the economy”.

I am an architect and LEED-AP DB+C (knowledgeable about Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design in the Building Design and Construction realm). I love the outdoors, have a healthy nervousness around technology (ah, well) and revel in working with large and diverse groups of people.

I was raised in New England by stoic but fun-loving older parents, and I consider myself frugal until I get swept away by crafted work too beautiful to resist.

I have strong and usually clear opinions that are still flexible and capable of growing and changing as I gain strong and clear perspectives from other sources.

I welcome you to learn from me and to teach me.

Some current work/passionate exploits include:

Creating a website to link the work in Project Drawdown to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. This site can be of use to businesses, municipalities, educators. Please take a look – thoughtful critique is always welcome. Problems, meet Solutions.

Greater involvement with NESEA as a lifetime member, and in helping to identify and develop the education sessions for this spring’s Building Energy 2019 conference in Boston. I am also the co-chair for the Building Energy NYC conference in fall of 2019. (NESEA is linked on the Speaking Gigs page).

Speaking at the first Wellness in Design conference, taking place this January, 2019, in San Diego.  I will be speaking about biophilia and evidence of its presence and great value in buildings we cherish.
