Industry experience

A professional engineer with over a decade of experience in developing and deploying clean technologies, my previous roles have included the deployment of over 20MW of utility scale CSP technology at Ausra and design of CPV and high temperature solar collectors at Chromasun. I actively mentor cleantech startups through programs such as Caltech’s FLoW and the Australian Technology Park’s Ignition Labs. In 2014, I was awarded the Advance Global Australian of the Year in Clean Technology and graduated with a Global Executive MBA from the University of Sydney. At Geli I'm working with energy developers to analyze, design, deploy and operate energy storage systems using the Geli EOS software platform. The company has over 50MW of projects in the pipeline for deployment behind-the-meter with over-the-meter utility services.

Helping entrepreneurs

I have always worked in startups and consider myself an expert in bootstrapping companies and doing the hustle needed to get through a Series A.
