That’s why he decided to study Engineering at Swarthmore College, focusing on renewable energy. Since finishing high school, he has thrown himself into any renewable energy related work he could find, from joining Indigo Energy in our early days to going on a solo research project in renewable energy policy in Japan. Currently managing projects, designing systems and solving challenging problems to ensure clients are satisfied and projects are installed safely.
