  • What are you passionate about? What are the ideas that drive you?

    I am passionate about fighting climate change by helping the energy industry become cleaner, specifically by reducing the need to generate energy in the first place. Managing where and when energy is consumed can be more cost effective than building more generation.

  • When do you have the most fun at work?

    When I get to play with data and work with colleagues to understand our analyses. Managing teams of nationally-recognized evaluation professionals and providing fast, synthesized results to clients are also rewarding.

  • What’s on your desk?

    A plant, two photos from my wedding, and a magic eight ball.
