His byline appears regularly in both print and online publications including Architectural Record, Discover, MIT’s Technology Review, and IEEE Spectrum, among others. He is also a frequent commentator on innovation and the environment and has appeared on national broadcasts in the U.S., Canada and France and speaks on energy innovation to university, professional and business organizations.
