For more than a decade I worked as a management consultant for Fortune 500 clients in many different industries. I am highly experienced in business process and data modeling as well as facilitating communications between business and technology teams to ensure that business requirements are appropriately translated into technical specifications and software solutions.
Over the years I served in a diverse set of roles including Software Developer, IT Manager, Business Analyst, Management Consultant, Executive Director, Gallery Owner and now Energy Consultant in my own firm. The common theme of all these roles has been problem solving, project management and team coordination, just overall project work with all its challenges.
I left my consulting job to pursue a career path more meaningful to me. After some time searching for a job with a purpose I decided to join the sustainable building community as a sustainability and energy consultant building on my technical and analytical expertise.
For the last two years I have retooled myself and studied building science, energy modeling and the California Title 24 Energy and Green Code (CalGreen). I am now certified as a Passive House Consultant, LEED AP BD+C and Homes, WELL AP and REST ASP.
Currently I am primarily working on energy modeling for Title 24 code compliance and Passive House consulting for retrofits.
I graduated with a master’s degree in Business and Information Technology from University of Stuttgart, Germany.
As a side project and prototype for my own firm, PV Blue, I am currently creating a step-by-step retrofit plan based on the EnerPHit Standard to modernize The Ranch and make it a zero net energy home over time.
