I advocate for clean renewable energy and energy efficiency at primarily the state level. Prior to working at NRDC, I was a project manager for 2 ½ years at the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), running efficiency and demand response incentive programs for commercial buildings. I received my M.S. in Natural Resources and Environmental Policy from the University of Michigan and B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Outside of work I am usually, well, outside. My outdoor passions include long-distance bike rides, hiking, birding, and landscape photography.
