Career Undertakings and Milestones

Initiated, implemented and executed contracts and agreements for development and provision of renewable energy products and commodities both domestic and abroad. Spearheaded and collaborated on the first full-cycle approved Phytosanitation – Heat Treatment facility meeting import restrictions throughout the EU for biomass intended to be shipped from Maine, USA to CHP plants and Paper Manufacturers. Completed testing and HT processing for export in 2014 for Kraft paper quality wood chips to Germany. Executed a 12 year 240 KMTPY supply contract for Biomass to Belgium. Finalizing agreements for supply of 200KMTPY of HT biomass to UK/EU CHP plants. Negotiated and executed fiber, saw log and wood chip supply contracts with top-tier buyers in China, Turkey, Egypt, Belgium, Ireland and other destinations. Current and ongoing discussions with major importers of significant materials such as road salt, heavy equipment, renewable energy materials and raw paper fiber.

 

Initiated and subsequently implemented a program across the State of Florida to utilize in excess of 70,000 acres of degraded citrus fiber for biomass use. While the project started with the intention of exporting citrus to Poland for biomass – the exporting of fiber without adequate fumigation presented a roadblock. All citrus fiber was then redirected to CHP plants such as Ineos on the Florida east coast and to GREC in Gainesville. During this same time-frame a program for planting, growing, harvesting and processing Jatropha on Haiti for biodiesel production and export was undertaken. During this same time we explored an opportunity for job creation in Haiti by contemplating and writing a business plan for ‘ship breaking’ – shortly thereafter we decided against participating in this venture due to the detrimental results that would be created and thus would contribute to undesirable environmental outcomes.             

 

Invited to Haiti by Ministers of both the Economy and Finance, and in collaboration with significant Haiti NGO groups, we provided extensive Pro Bono Humanitarian consultation to Haiti firms and major institutions throughout the US interested in providing assistance to Haiti and its citizens in the Aftermath of the Natural Disaster Earthquake of 2010. Wrote a Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Plan fully sanctioned by the Haitian Parliament with a Budget of $1.5 Billion. Plan included Social Housing, Medical Clinic Development, Agrarian Farming, Jatropha Biodiesel Plantation development, Solar Lighting for Inner Cities, Water well drilling, Demolition and Repurposing of debris from fallen structures, Heavy Construction Equipment training and the intended delivery of a floating hotel/dormitory ship to assist in housing professionals seeking to provide support and services to Haiti. These Projects have been adopted and recognized by Haiti and are available for review on request.

 

Devised and developed, as consultant to government and international entities and NGO groups, with professional and diplomatic relationships on the Island Countries of Antigua, St. Lucia and St. Kitts, programs and projects in parts and entirety, involving feasibility studies for Renewable Energy Plants in both the Wind and Solar sectors, Municipal Waste to Energy Plants, Jatropha Plantation and Bio-Diesel production for export, Low Cost – Social Housing utilizing alternative building products such as SIP structures and Sustainable Technology Parks that would include call centers, SIP production, window manufacturing and the possible production of plastic pallets from recycled plastics.

 

As a construction management professional, facilitated and negotiated GC/CM contracts with aggregate volume in excess of $1BB, directing all phases of site selection and acquisition, architectural and engineering design, entitlements, multi-faceted project funding or investor alignments, preconstruction to turn-key, multi-family, residential, PUD, condominium, commercial, industrial, educational, military facilities and infrastructure projects both domestic and international. Secured venture capital funding from lenders and investors, arranged for advanced institutional presales necessary for preconstruction starts on major projects.

 

Augmented a professional career with parallel educational accomplishments and industry-wide recognition for establishing construction industry incubators, writing and implementing workforce development programs, devising higher education & technical programs, lecturing and teaching as Adjunct Faculty at Florida International University in their graduate level construction management and engineering program. Speaking at international and domestic forums for renewable energy, biomass, construction management and humanitarian interests. Engaged in civic and charitable undertakings for 40 years while serving society in both domestic and international setting to include a record of program development from concept, planning, resource allocation and implementation to turn-key delivery. Proven commitment to international humanitarian relief (i.e. Kuwait (1991), Haiti (2010-2013), and Venezuela (2012) and domestic reconstruction-redevelopment initiatives related to hurricane disasters (Andrew-1992; Katrina-2005; Sandy-2012; Irma and Harvey-2017); heavily engaged in mitigation of global warming/greenhouse gas through renewable energy projects.
