Starting my career in the renewables investment sector, I was immediately confronted with the daunting complexities of financial terminology and modeling. Driven to overcome these challenges, I dove into every learning resource available, from online classes to on-the-job training. My dedication turned mastering renewable energy modeling and valuation into a personal mission.
This long and demanding journey inspired me to establish the Renewables Valuation Institute (RVI) and the Renewables Valuation Analyst (RVA) Program. My aim is to provide students with a streamlined pathway to the critical knowledge and skills that I once struggled to obtain, ensuring accessibility and affordability.
Holding a Bachelor of Science in Energy Management and being a CFA charterholder, I am now deeply committed to empowering the next generation of renewable energy professionals by bridging the gap between complex industry knowledge and practical, accessible education.
