Currently, I'm a graduate student in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University with an intense interest in sustainable building and design, renewable energy and green technology.

I want to have a future impact on the technological development of smart cities and the built environment. I'm working toward my LEED Certification in Green Construction from the U.S. Green Building Council. And, my end-goal is to complete my PhD in Sustainability. I love adaptive reuse projects!

I served as real estate advisor with Tony Robbins and Suze Orman for two of the best-selling real estate books on the market - "Find it, Fix it, Flip it," and "Ready, Set, Sold."

My green project design work includes: The New Phoenix Recycling Center: Circular Economy Business Project for the City of Phoenix (RISN), the Rainwater Capture System for the Liberty Wildlife Foundation. I also wrote and produced a documentary, called "The Farmer and The Bee." The film takes a look at the effects of pesticides on honey bees and colony collapse disorder.
