For the last 16 years, I’ve had the privilege of doing meaningful work, working with exceptional clients and partners. As an Electrical Engineer and Principal at Mazzetti, I specialize in the design of electrical distribution, power, renewables, lighting, telecommunications, fire alarm systems, and coordination with architects and other disciplines.
I really enjoy leading teams — coordinating and coaching to achieve a successful project. My team has had the honor to participate on landmark projects, including the $1B+ LEED Platinum Packard Children’s Hospital and on various projects for portfolio clients like UCSF, Kaiser Permanente and Stanford Health Care.
I ensure our work is tailored to each client’s needs, avoiding cookie cutter designs.
My energy efficiency work for Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California, was highlighted in this EC&M article. For this $1.2 billion expansion – adding 521,000 square feet of floor space and more than 3.5 acres of healing gardens and green space – we used a low-velocity displacement air distribution system for patient rooms and other spaces, requiring lower horsepower fans and lowering cooling production.
As the Healthcare sector is urgently driving towards carbon neutrality, I take my role seriously to support environmental stewardship. Towards this, in addition to advising clients, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in demonstration projects, measuring the performance and reliability of microgrids — literally powering the future of Healthcare!
Electrical engineering even spills into my volunteer work. I have done a load analysis for a school for children of migrant workers in Ensenada, Mexico, and recommended a phased approach to building a power generation system.
