Regional Vice President



Tell me about your current project
I am still in the process of transitioning into the East Region VP role and working to make sure my knowledge of compressed natural gas (CNG), renewable natural gas (RNG) and landfill gas (LFG) is captured for use by ET’s Engineering Team.

What’s your favorite part about working at ET?
ET has some very talented and hard-working people. They are quick to learn, able to comprehend and deliver complex projects like medical waste facilities, CNG fueling stations and NGV maintenance facilities.

What has been your favorite job or project in your career?
Honestly, my favorite job is the one I am in now. I have been able to expand on my experience with landfill gas and delve into new areas involving natural gas and renewable fuels.

What are your favorite hobbies or pastimes?
Building. From wood to metals to cars, I generally have some construction project going. I am contemplating a CNG-fueled cobra somewhere in the future.

Does your dream vacation require snow gear, sunscreen, or something else?
My Harley and a compass.
