I established Process Profiles, an environmental consulting firm, in 1995. I help organizations understand and communicate their environmental performance, including their potential for improvements in energy efficiency. I identify products, processes, or substances to focus on during improvement efforts. My solutions are data-driven – I rely on models, process simulation tools, and the fundamentals of chemistry and thermodynamics to explain observations and assess expectations. My understanding of environmental regulations and green metrics also guides my work. I often use information contained in large databases (including census product, life cycle inventory, chemical property, hazard assignment, and chemical emission databases) to inform or contextualize my technical findings. Because my results are robust and provide perspective, I can communicate effectively with a diverse audience.
My clients range from local to international and include manufacturers, non-profits, and government agencies.
For many years, I've been a regular member of technical peer review panels for EPA scholarships and SBIR grants. I taught an upper division/graduate student elective on pollution prevention in the chemical engineering department at California State University, Long Beach for two years and have co-authored many handbooks, textbooks, and other teaching and outreach materials.
