Vice President
Hidden Gem
Two truths and a lie: I’ve run the Napa Valley marathon, rode the Mendicino Monster, and swam the Escape from Alcatraz.

After a career in Napa Valley’s world-renowned wine industry, I pivoted to renewable energy with the goal of turning esoteric sustainability goals into actionable energy resiliency strategies. I have developed solar PV and PV+ microgrid projects for the world’s most luxurious brands, wineries, and fromage producers. Additionally, I have worked with California’s prestigious universities, K-12 schools, and local governments.

When not helping organizations go green and off-grid, I enjoy cycling, cooking, making wine with friends and volunteering for Napa Valley’s Transportation Authority.
