Additional information

Through constant learning and leading in the green circular economy, I have spent most of my working career advocating energy conservation and sustainable engineered solutions. I have become a life-long student and practitioner of: engineering for greener energy & economics, sustainable building science engineering, mechanical HVAC systems, project management, and net-zero construction.

In the broadest sense, my study interests relate to building systems engineering, including greater sustainable building envelope performance all the while centred around energy conservation of HVAC systems in the commercial, institutional and industrial segments.
