With over 25 years exploring every corner of the outdoors and fighting to preserve it, Jesse's dedication to revolutionizing the energy sector is well-founded. His background in kayaking, kiteboarding, snowboarding, biking, climbing, diving, and everything else wilderness related proved integral in realizing the immense need for sustainable practices in commercial and municipal settings.
Having spent the past decade in the transportation sector helping companies reduce their carbon footprint through designing tailored mass transit programs, his experience in developing green solutions for businesses is welcomed. From previously specializing in green investment products at Morgan Stanley to developing raw land parcels into off-grid sustainable farms complete with tiny houses, Jesse has a track record of finding a green lining in any investment opportunity.
