Cornell University Sustainable Design: Schoolhouse South Africa

Cornell University Sustainable Design
Cornell University Sustainable Design is the managing umbrella group that oversees 3 concurrent design-build project teams: Schoolhouse South Africa, Sustainability Research Facility, and Sustainable Neighborhood Nicaragua. Previously competed in the national Solar Decathlon competition as Cornell University Solar Decathlon.

As the current Communication Director Emeritus, I advise in overseeing marketing, graphic, and identity branding products for CUSD project teams. I led a team to develop two new websites as the creative director.
