He has over ten years of architecture experience and has been an integral part of Pittsburgh’s sustainability movement since the mid-1990s.

Prior to co-founding evolveEA, Marc was the Pittsburgh Green Building Alliance's Project Manager, where he consulted for organizations like Allegheny County, Community Loan Fund and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, and staffed and managed the Green Building Fund.
