Jim joined the Peace Corps after college to explore new cultures and give back. But he also came away with considerable insight into various infrastructure models around the world. That experience fueled a passion for exploring sustainable energy sources. From the Denver office, he works with utility clients to integrate wind and solar power into their energy mix.

Jim has held a number of interesting jobs, including teaching physics in Tanzania and working a farm in New Zealand. But it was mowing lawns at a golf course that presented the most challenging schedule — he regularly had to start work at 4 a.m.
