As the founder and principal environmental consultant at Resource Management Associates, I’ve spent the last 25+ years helping customers and clients 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, greener organization, but not in a wishy-washy pie-in-the-sky fashion. I try to provide practical, real-life advice on how you can improve your operations and save your time, money, and energy for keeping your business running and making money. Outside of RMA I enjoy surfing, DIY projects, and college football & basketball.
