This website is designed to highlight some of my work as a graduate student at Portland State University where I studied building science and thermo-fluid systems. Some would call this "Green Building". I prefer "Good Building Design".
Engineers have always played a role in ensuring that buildings can provide a comfortable environment for their occupants. My goal is to help create comfortable buildings, while minimizing the impact of our built environment on the natural world. This cannot be done without an understanding of aesthetics or economics. A truly sustainable building is not a luxury. It is a good value to both the building owner, and to the city that surrounds it. The primary goal of my work is to help quantify the value of sustainable building design and urban development.
