Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
The work I get paid for is residential construction estimating. I also do residential project management and residential design.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I know the past will not be a good predictor of the future. I believe the best way to prepare for uncertainty is in community.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
At my core I am a systems person. I am task oriented.
I have good knowledge and skills in the following areas: energy, alternate energy, solar energy, passive solar, passive house, alternative building systems and methods, economics, ecological economics. I have some training in permaculture; but, I am not certified. I have well developed computer application skills.
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
Helping to build a framework and network which makes it easier for myself and others to find a path to sustainability.
