Jude’s approach to sustainability is founded on the ideal that humans should exist in harmony with nature. Fascinated by physics, he appreciates the discipline imposed by the laws of nature and their application to active and passive sustainable strategies.
As a senior sustainability consultant, Jude looks beyond energy and water conservation to whole building life cycle assessment and certification methods critical in net zero energy and carbon neutral design. Offering diverse solutions that conform with client resources, his project experience includes the LEED Silver certification of the 700,000 square foot Central Courthouse in San Diego, the Zero Net Energy Hilton Foundation in Agoura Hills, and wellbeing-enhanced technology office space and healthcare facilities. Jude is expanding regional services to include certifications, embodied carbon reduction, and health and wellbeing improvement. During project conception, he works with interdisciplinary teams to optimize sustainability. This collaborative spirit extends to sharing knowledge through publishing and teaching.
As part of a local band, Jude plays percussion instruments. Sensitive to the rhythms of life, his favorite beat is that of his daughter’s heart.
