I recently worked with Urban Green Council as a consultant on Outreach and Delivery, with particular focus on the GPRO program. GPRO is a national (soon to be international) green building certificate program for Contractors, Building Managers/Operators and Trades. I developed a strategy for partner relations and meeting the needs of Urban Green partners and the Trades, to advance green building in North America. I spent time at the U.S. Department of State in the office of environmental policy, focused on advancing US interests in cross-cutting environmental issues as they pertain to peace, security, development, technology, economics and climate. I also spent time with Suffolk County, New York in the Division of Environmental Quality where I applied federal, state and local, environmental, zoning, and building codes to residential and commercial development projects and proposals.
