My role at CDFA is to continue to develop and manage our energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. Prior to joining the team here at CDFA I was a Project Developer for a national solar installer. During my seven years in that position I took 50MW’s of projects from conception to commissioning. I have a deep understanding of what it takes to get a renewable energy project permitted, financed and constructed. Specific areas of focus of mine include solar for subsidized housing, municipalities and developing solar on brownfields and landfills. I have experience with numerous funding sources including state and federal rebates, low-income housing tax credits, Renewable Energy Credits and new market tax credits. I have developed projects in NJ, NH, MA and VT.

While growing up in mid-coast Maine I developed a passion for the outdoors and enjoy many activities including surfing, hiking and skiing. I live in Portsmouth with my wife and two children. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
