I helped start the leading online residential solar electricity company, Sungevity, with two wonderful business partners in 2007, as an integral part of the campaign to promote the use of clean energy and eliminate the world’s dependence on fossil fuel.
I have worked on climate and energy issues for over two decades. Prior to starting Sungevity, I served as the campaigns manager for Greenpeace Australia Pacific. In the US, I ran Greenpeace’s California Clean Energy Campaign in 2001-02. Before that I directed Project Underground, an organization committed to the human rights of people struggling with mining and oil operations. And before that I did work mostly with Action for Solidarity, Equality, Environment and Development (a.k.a. A SEED).
