Personal bio
I held a number of senior leadership positions at IBM in business development, marketing, sales, and product development across the hardware, software, and services organizations. As vice president of Energy & Environment at IBM, I was responsible for launching a business segment with revenues in excess of $4B across IBM's broad sustainability portfolio including energy efficient IT, intelligent buildings, smart urban infrastructure, and optimization of operations for energy, carbon, water, and waste. I had the privilege of working with hundreds of organizations around the world to help them address the issues and opportunities around energy, the environment, and sustainability. This will be my second year teaching Smart Cities and Communities within the SEWSS program. Previously, I was an adjunct professor at Columbia University's Earth Institute for Environmental Sustainability for four years. After living in many regions in the US and Europe, I returned home to California in 2015 and currently reside in Noe Valley in San Francisco.
