I work with organizations that are mission-driven. The mission? To craft effective public policy that accelerates the transition to clean energy as a central solution to climate change. From the production of clean energy to the technologies that use it, I’m passionate about creating economic opportunities, enhancing well-being, and advancing reconciliation while cutting pollution.
I offer a unique blend of skills spanning policy expertise, communications savvy, and political acumen that can help you develop and execute strategies that get results.
My approach to effective problem-solving starts with looking at the big picture: analysis helps us understand its pieces, and synthesis unlocks how they connect, relate, and interact. Once your strategy is in play, ongoing evaluation empowers us to learn what works and what doesn’t, and how we can adapt to make progress faster and more effectively.
Working with civil society organizations, businesses, philanthropists, and governments, I help build bridges and forge strategic alliances.
As with any systemic change, there are barriers to the solutions we need and plenty of people that can help you identify them. I call them the “no, because…” people. As a solutions-oriented thinker, I can help you find and secure “yes, if…” policy solutions that enable progress.
