Ever since I was a young boy, I have loved to build things. I built wood block bridges, LEGO castles and tree forts and structures that defied description. My parents met at Lane Community College's Energy Management Program, so I guess it's no surprise I ended up being interested in energy efficiency and sustainability and pursued my education in that field.
I have worked in the building science trade since 2005, and had an excellent opportunity to learn and grow as an energy expert and auditor. I have worked with various agencies in and around Minnesota as a third party verifier and building science consultant, and led diagnostic activities with Minnesota area construction and weatherization professionals, explaining the interactions of moisture and energy on building structures and components.
My formal training continues to evolve, as I am a dedicated student of sustainability. I continue to attend professional development workshops and conferences to stay on pace with a constantly evolving industry. I have multiple certifications in the energy field, including Minnesota Advanced Residential Energy Auditor, RESNET as a certified HERS rater and BPI as a building analyst professional.
I have a passion for helping people understand how their house works in relationship to energy, and I look forward to working with you.
