What key words best describe your hope for the future?

Sustainable communities, clean energy, environmental justice

Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.

My work focuses on transforming the energy efficiency of buildings throughout Santa Barbara County. The primary focus currently is single-family residential energy efficiency, though we see opportunity, and are aiming to expand our scope to multi-family and commercial buildings in the near future.

How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?

I'm specifically interested in learning about how others have successfully marketed investments with intangible benefits and long payback periods. I'm also generally interested in learning about various sustainability initiatives throughout the community.

What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?

I'm willing to contribute my knowledge, expertise, and ideas around sustainability.
