Daniel received his Bachelors in Civil Engineering from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and promptly returned back to the west in pursuit of outdoor adventure and entrepreneurial opportunities. After working as a Civil Engineer, recreational-residential community developer, chasing tornadic supercells in Oklahoma and backpacking throughout New Zealand, Daniel rediscovered his passion for sustainable building practices. Since that time Daniel has been committed to renewable energy, green building, and the enhancement of social well-being.
In early 2010 Daniel joined the fledgling Clean Energy Center in Reno, Nevada, took the helm and grew the company from $75,000 to $2.5M in annual sales in two years. Clean Energy Center designs, engineers and installs energy efficiency and renewable energy systems including Solar Photovoltaics, Solar Thermal, Wind Energy, Ground-Source Heating, LED lighting, and Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. Through Daniel’s efforts the Clean Energy Center was recognized as a leader in the state of Nevada and received the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology’s “Green Technology Company of the Year” Award for 2011.
Daniel is on the Board of Advisors for Life More Natural 501(c)(3), The Hero Projects (Adventure Voluntourism), The Elements Survival Training Partnership, and Shushly LLC.
