No company affiliations.
In short, I source, analyze and evaluate real estate & renewable energy investment opportunities for clients and myself. I also help with deal structuring and raising multiple types of project capital; this includes equity & debt, tax credits, power purchase agreements, energy savings performance contracting and nonprofit fundraising.
I was contracted for one year to be the Renewable Energy Inspector and Administrator for the Net Energy Metering (NEM) and Feed In Tariff (FIT) programs at MECO. I coordinated with county inspectors, EPC contractors and clients and completed over 300 inspections on RE systems totaling over 4MW of power. I completed the following administrative duties for both of the programs such as; circuit penetration inquiries, field and office data entry, NEM and FIT paperwork and policies.
As Vice President, I was responsible for Living Ethic Architecture's financial management and business operations. I directly oversaw the design/build department while simultaneously defining the company's core business objectives for performance, collaborative operations, environmental management, and financial performance. I also lead the merger and incorporated LEA into Restorative Developments (RD), to vertically integrate RD into a design/build/develop firm in July of 2009.
As Project Manager; I estimated project costs, sourced materials and negotiated purchasing contracts, scheduled, directed and coordinated a variety of quality custom home projects from $200,000 to $3 million dollars. I controlled and managed overhead and project budget costs; approved selection of subcontractors and materials decisions. I was responsible for overseeing and implementing Business Process Improvement (BPI) and Lean Measures to project accounting and administrative teams, which resulted in a cost reduction on average of $3,000 dollars per job in the administration department.
My responsibilities included overseeing and accurately reviewing final HABS (Historic American Buildings Survey) and HAER (Historic American Engineering Record) documents that included single family and commercial drawings prepared in AutoCAD, preparation of financial policies, systems and statements, interaction with local and state planning department to comply with regulations of historic preservation. Proactive management of crucial external relationships with the County of Maui and Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar allowed Ethic Living to increase revenue by 67%, as well as maintain exclusive relationships in a key market segment (historic preservation) expanding the company's share of that segment by 35% in 2006.
As Office Manager, I was responsible for office operations such as bookkeeping, submitting proposals for RFPs, and overall management of company operations reporting directly to president/owner.
I lead the creation of development & investment opportunities, analyze and evaluate markets/deals, create funding packages, manage the projects and raise project capital with a concentration on real estate and renewable energy.
I created the SEER Program which is a solar solution for commercial building owners that have single or multi-tenant occupied retail, office or industrial buildings and allows them to benefit financially without any capital outlay or operating risks.
