After 30 years of consulting to federal agencies and departments I care passionately about, I have come to appreciate how important new data and application-sharing tools are to achieving environmental and energy goals. I am grateful that, as this stage of my career, I can bring a highly diverse combination of insights, perspectives, and skill sets to help my clients achieve their goals.
