My job is to find ways to make the built environment more energy and water efficient and resilient. I was part of the team that helped Savona, in Italy, become LEED Certified as a City. I also recently installed a garden at a school to teach children about agriculture. We installed art sculptures made from scrap materials from a local electric fixture manufacturer and sculpted by students at the local college in the gardens.
