I am a ten-year veteran to the environmental consultancy business. An environmental engineer by background I began my journey as a remedial engineer evaluating, designing and implementing remedies for environmental contaminated sites. This experience provided a window into the corporate practices of old and the associated financial risks that came along with it. After striving to improve the environment for humans, flora and fauna alike I came to a crossroads - continue or shift focuses towards the improvement of corporate practices. As my passion and skill set are centered on dynamic system optimization, I choose the later. Today my focus is supporting corporations develop system processes that optimize progress towards their key metrics while incorporating the previously invisible cost of environmental and social externalities.
