I'm a deeply curious sustainable design strategy geek. I'm passionate about finding ways to apply human ingenuity to eliminating ecological impacts. I've explored intersections across design, ecology, art, business and tech, and have been immersed in sustainable design since 1997. My first real job involved building an experimental, flexible passive building system for the Dept. of Energy in the fierce Texas heat. Since then, I've made furniture, designed civil infrastructure, advised companies, and specialized in shaping, and communicating about, new ecological technologies.
