When people celebrate my life, I want it to be said of me that I left the world better than I found it, that I added value and joy to their lives, that I strove to continually obsolete my greatest triumphs—a phrase I take from Willis Carrier—and that I was just and fair. This, I believe, aligns with Energy Sciences’ vision for a resilient world in which clean, affordable energy and water are available to everyone.
The work that we do in educating clients about the ways they can improve the operation of their buildings so that earth’s precious few resources can be available for others—in this generation and the next seven—is what motivates me to come here to work. Whether its is through a class on energy management or code compliance, a facility assessment or a building upgrade, we help people and the buildings they operate—the buildings in which we spend more than 85% of our time living, working and playing—to be better and better able to co-exist. That is the most rewarding part of my work. That is what makes me smile at the end of my workday.
