His career experiences range from implementing President Carter’s building energy efficiency program at the submarine base in Pearl Harbor; constructing natural gas processing plants west of Bakersfield, California; designing and installing enhanced oil recovery projects in the Bay Fields off the coast of Louisiana; managing the project execution of over 35 wind farms across the U.S. and internationally; and asset management oversight of residential, commercial & industrial, and utility-scale solar plants across the country.
