Driven by Innovation, Work Ethic and Integrity 

Outdoor Adventurer & Quiet Professional

Loves Fast and Precise Organizations

Steve understands how to assemble data, information, action and results that are meaningful to the constituents of each Energy Management Team. He helped shape the Net Zero press release content for the City of Albuquerque in late 2018. He anticipates Executive level requirements and communication with ease. He has run large ‘operations’ organizations in the semiconductor industry with direct profit and loss responsibility in unforgiving business environments. He had direct responsibility for over $500M in highly complex equipment installations globally with extensive vendor management requirements. He stood up New Mexico’s first commercial and industrial demand response program establishing 32 MW of virtual peaking power plant capacity in 2008. As his career in energy progressed, Steve realized early that our customers don’t have a data problem, they often have an information problem that touches electricity, gas and water waste.
