I am a hybrid renewable energy engineer, project engineer, disruptive technologist, ruimdenker, generalist, technical writer, web content management, copy editor and communications specialist with a background in renewable energy, systems engineering, sustainable development, and IT systems analysis and administration. From time to time, when I have a moment, I also dabble in music publishing and wearing the hat of an Eco-chef.

I am interested in working on projects and challenging opportunities with a focus on renewables, specifically wind, solar and hydrokinetics, as well as energy efficiency. I completed my PG Dipl (Post Graduate Diploma == MSc non-thesis in the USA) in renewable energy systems technology engineering  from the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), Loughborough University, UK. My passion is focused in hybrid renewable energy systems and distributed energy scenarios.

I am Experienced
I have held leadership and decision-making roles in computer software start-up companies during the dot-com, enabling companies I worked for to maintain a lower bottom line financially. My knowledge current research and trends in the field of renewable energy and sustainability development is comprehensive, nationally and internationally.

I am Connected
I am adept at networking and building strategic alliances by utilizing conventional, unconventional and creative approaches, developing and working in collaborative teams. I am respected by colleagues in the USA and abroad, many of whom now run their own companies or hold senior management positions and/or are company principals.

I am a Problem-Solver
I have been privileged to initiate, launch and lead several process improvement efforts in my past jobs. My greatest strengths include taking bold, decisive and definitive action to solve problems, adept at networking and building strategic alliances by utilizing conventional, unconventional and creative approaches, developing and working in collaborative teams. I can create positive impact and change at a large organizations, which ultimately lead to a stream-lined and optimized workplace, enhancing productivity. I am a strategic thinker with lots of  determination, persistence and an extraordinary ability to concentrate and overcome challenges.

I am Greener

On a day-to-day basis, I practice maintaining a low-carbon footprint–I walk, ride a bicycle and utilize mass transportation as my primary means for mobility. I am also a member of the Energy Institute (UK), International Solar Energy Society and the Union of Concerned Scientists. I possess a comprehensive knowledge of current research and trends being conducted in the field of renewable energy and sustainability development; nationally and internationally. I also subscribe to a number of industry web sites to keep apprised of the latest events in the cleaner and greener technology sector.

I am Entrepreneurial
Co-founded a music publishing entity, Beatsforsale.com, which was one of the first of its kind in 1999. This gave me solid sales and marketing experience, necessary for growing any business. In tandem with being a contributing progenitor of the green jobs movement in Oakland, CA, USA in 2005/06, I also laid the groundwork for a green jobs 501(c)(3) non-profit, Green Opps!

I am a Creative, Motivated Collaborator
I enjoy workplaces where there is appreciation of innovation and originality, and job content variety. I have a passion for coming up with new ideas, like change and dynamic environments, so I don’t mind ambiguity. I rather like being immersed in projects that are high-risk with high-reward opportunities. I am highly motivated and a self-starter. Working independently, or as a team member is not a problem.

I am Available


Aside: Sometimes I find myself immersed in solving problems requiring the consideration of a spherical or cylindrical cow
