Personal Statement

I was a fellow on the High Performance Building Guidelines project and its follow-up, Implementing the High Performance Building Guidelines. The opportunity to work with a large group of stakeholders in New York City government and assist in the development of awareness of the basics of sustainability was a very important to me. Instead of consulting to a group, it was much more valuable to participate in the process of understanding. Being a resource is much more fun than simply telling people what to do. The multitude of projects toward which we later applied these high performance building principles made the process more rich. New York City is one of the few places this kind of intense engagement can occur over an extended period of time.
