Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I am the founder of a startup that is building a web-based tool for measuring and improving business's local economic impact. We are also building a platform that enables strategic fundraising and micro-equity investment based on ESG and local economic impact.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I grew up on Maui - an agricultural and renewable energy paradise and ideal site for demonstrating and benefiting from independence as espoused by the transition movement. Yet the distressing reality is that 80 percent of Hawaii's food and 90 percent of its energy is imported. I identify with the Transition movement because I would like to change that.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I have a Master's in Sustainable Business Management (MBA) from Presidio Graduate School and an Bachelor's in Public Policy with a concentration in sustainable economic development from Duke University. I also have USGBC green building license (LEED) and have professional experience in application of sustainable management practices in the real estate development and tourism, agricultural, financial, and educational sectors.
