Program Manager at the San Diego Green Building Council, Ravi is primarily involved in "experiential learning" programs in partnership with local community organizations. His passion for sustainability began early on,
celebrated officially having graduated from the University of California, San
Diego in December of 2009 with a BS in Environmental Systems-Earth Science.
Nearing graduation, while completing his remaining coursework and interning
with a marine micro-biology lab at Scripps, Ravi began to work part-time with
H2O-Me, a residential Greywater/Rainwater design and installation firm in San
Diego. Installations for simple residential laundry-to-landscape greywater
systems for example, could save upwards of 30 gallons of potable water for
landscaping per load. Illustrating the impacts that a responsible built
environment can mitigate, and the opportunities that exist for sustainability
even at the smallest scale, Ravi was introduced to the building design,
construction, and operations (and deconstruction) industries.
Moving his passion to high-performing and sustainable buildings, Ravi began
volunteering with the USGBC-San Diego and interning with the EcoLogic Studio,
a local LEED consulting firm. Part-time work became a full-time opportunity
with the USGBC-San Diego as a Project Coordinator in November of 2011.
Primarily working with the Green Assistance Program (GAP) in San Diego, Ravi
also works with chapter
volunteers to facilitate LEED credential study groups, educational events,
and assist members with any building certification or credential inquiries.
Outside of the green building world, Ravi can be found hiking, surfing, or
volunteering with other community organizations; and spending as much time as
possible with Ashley.
