What have you been up to since you left SISE in 2015?
After leaving SISE in early fall of 2015, I continued job hunting for about 6 more months eventually landing an associate position at E3.
What kind of projects are you involved in at the moment?
I’ve mostly done work in the asset valuation space. Among other things, I’ve worked on projects with renewable energy developers (created a pro forma model for a wind developer), large energy users like transportation authorities (assessed conjunctive billing opportunities for a municipal transportation authority), municipal utilities (analyzed the potential benefits and bill impacts of a consolidation of two municipal utilities).
Are you thinking of sticking around San Francisco?
That’s definitely the plan. I love what I do, where I work, and the people I work with. And I see a lot of room for growth.
We know you like to dance! Tell us about that.
I LOVE!!!! to dance. Haha. I’ve been involved with Latin dancing for about 3 years now, focusing primarily on Salsa and Bachata. I was part of a Bachata performance team for a dance school in Michigan called Dance Revolution, and I’m currently part of a Bachata performance team called InEssence Dance Company here in the Bay Area. Life as a dancer has given me the opportunity to travel round the US (internationally soon *fingers crossed*) going for dance congresses/festivals which involve workshops, show case performances, and social dancing. There’s a few of the performances I’ve been part of on YouTube.
Would you ever consider having a cat as a dance partner?
LMAO. There was a time I would have thought this was absolutely impossible, but having seen the Acrocats performance, I would totally do it!
