During my career, I have secured financing, started, sold and advised start-ups. I have spent most of my career as a financial analyst and CEO, with responsibilities ranging from strategist, portfolio manager, as well as prepared financial statements and audits. My CEO experience includes three companies in the following areas: software, alternative energy, and medical service. After a successful 22-year career managing a private equity fund and starting and selling a 1000 person consulting firm, I worked with a non-profit to address environmental issues with sustainable technologies. I focused in three areas: green building projects, including green roofs; renewable energy - biogas NYC food waste digester and Dominican Republic food waste and farm digester to capture biogas; and carbon accounting in China. I love that what I have done combines teaching, conservation, science, economics, and finance.
