I am the Director of Sustainability Programs for DASNY, the Construction and Public Finance Authority of New York State. I love being an architect, LEED AP BD+C, AIA member, and I have served in many leadership roles with the USGBC in local and national committees.
One of my favorite things to do, and I am good at it, is to speak about greening in all it's permutations. I have done so throughout NY State: on green building and sustainable choices, as a guest instructor at Cornel, NYU, and RPI, training contractors, working with a talented and knowledgeable committee on "Greening the Executive Mansion", and as a speaker several times at Greenbuild.
My work for DASNY and New York State includes setting and achieving aggressive green building goals, assessing and improving DASNY business operations including green procurement opportunities and tracking, and collaborating on state policy work related to green procurement, green buildings, climate change and resiliency.
My personal goal, and what keeps me going, is to incorporate sustainable practices into as many elements of design, construction and living as possible, and to share whatever I have learned and learn still more from whomever will talk with me.
