As the founder and principal environmental consultant at Resource Management Associates, I’ve spent the last 25+ years helping folks with the hurdles of environmental regulatory compliance. From international organizations to mom and pop facilities, I’ve tried my hardest to help folks however they need. Whether it’s getting into conducting Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, developing environmental management systems, or recently helping folks start sustainability programs, I know that breaking down this often complicated information is the key to your success. While I'm passionate about the environment and making tomorrow a greener, better place, I know without your organization's buy-in and understanding, it will never happen. My job is to help your business become a leaner, green organization, but not in a wishy-washy BS fashion. I never recommend you convert your light bulbs or don't flush the toilet. I provide practical, real life advice on how you can improve your operations and save your time, money, and energy for other issues. Outside of RMA I enjoy surfing, DIY projects, and college football & basketball.
