Primary Interest Areas:
-- Environmental Resource Management (mgmt of our air, water, land, food & material resources)
-- Pollution Control and Pollution Prevention ("reduce-reuse-recycle")
-- Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Systems (energy, buildings, transportation, ag, etc.)
-- "Efficiency and Sufficiency" (efficient resource use and addressing over-consumption)
Prior to joining DeAnza in 2010, I spent over 20 years working in the areas of environmental management and pollution control and prevention (the areas that I now teach in here at DeAnza!). My professional experience includes:
-- Identifying, characterizing and cleaning up old hazardous waste sites ("Superfund sites").
-- Designing industrial treatment systems to control/prevent pollution and manage waste.
-- Helping ensure that business/industry complies with environmental laws and regulations.
-- Helping business/industry "go green" ("beyond compliance").
I have worked in a variety of situations, including as:
-- A technical/management consultant to business/industry.
-- A direct employee of industry (for United Technologies and National Semiconductor).
-- A gov't regulator (for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in San Francisco).
-- A researcher at the University of Michigan's Center for Sustainable Systems.
In addition, I have:
-- Authored two books (The Environmental Guidebook and The California Environmental Guide),
both of which profile various organizations (non-profits, gov't entities, etc) involved in
environmental issues in the U.S. and California, respectively.
-- Founded Engineers Dedicated to a Better Tomorrow - a charitable non-profit that promotes
improving the world through the practice of sustainable engineering.
Finally, I am:
-- A licensed Professional Engineer.
-- A Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM).
My student surveys here at DeAnza have been highly positive with over 95% of students surveyed recommending me as an instructor. Within the individual teaching evaluation elements, I have earned my highest marks in terms of being knowledgeable, enthusiastic, well-organized and responsive to student needs and student diversity. The key to my success?: I like to teach and I love to learn.
