  • building design

Efficiency Launch Pad is a source of independent research and inspiration…

Where ambitious professionals learn from experienced mentors and reliable news sources,

to create big, positive, lasting changes that benefit people, planet and profits.

The Mission of Efficiency Launch Pad is to:

1) Introduce you to doers, thinkers and success stories so compelling that you can’t help but be inspired to overcome daunting challenges and turn your ambition into big, persistent energy savings.

2) Infect you with passion for greater success in business and project management, then help you build that success.

3) Bridge the gap between those that have achieved and those that will achieve–to leverage mentors knowledge of past success in ways that exponentially multiply the benefit of lessons learned.

4) Make ‘energy nerd’ a term of endearment and badge of honor. And have lots of fun making the world a better place.

  • Permitting Manager for a commercial wind power development firm
  • Division Director for a wind and solar design/construction firm and
  • Marketing Director for an energy efficiency engineering consulting firm

Before energy, my career path included eight years as a writer and photographer for publications including The New York Times and National Geographic Adventure and corporate giants like Morgan Stanley and Patagonia.

I was lucky to have editors as mentors. They taught me how to choose compelling topics, write to a specific audience and be succinct.
