I work in environmental policy, currently for a local government creating model policies and programs for energy efficiency. I aim to combine an understanding of human behavior, resource efficiency and urban planning to solve environmental problems. I try to use lessons from behavioral economics to motivate people to conserve energy and environmental resources.

I'm also very interested in happiness and how we can live more fulfilling lives, while having less impact on the earth. I blog about this at Small Answers.

I've also written for The Billfold, The Daily Muse and Green Infrastructure for Your Community. You can find me on linkedin and twitter.
