Time zone: EDT / UTS -4 (Miami, Florida)
Featured client: Native Renewables (Navajo Nation)

I assist universities, non-profits, government entities, start-ups and others with efforts that respond to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — addressing “poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.”

Recent work has also encompassed COVID-19 responses.

I approach projects, teaching and consultancy (distributed and otherwise) with an underlying interest in sustainable and frugal innovation and development. I draw attention to overlooked or discarded urban resources as well as rasquache — smaller footprint, more-with-less, inventive — approaches that can overcome barriers and accelerate positive change.

If you need help or want to collaborate, please be in touch.
