About Us

Our core mission is equal accessibility to incentives, in order to promote the implementation of sustainable practices in our built environment.

IncentiFind is the nation’s go-to database for green incentives. We help people connect with incentives so they can “go green” with their projects.

The government acknowledges that our built environment must serve us more productively as we head through the 21st century and beyond. In order to expedite the necessary changes,  the government contributes millions of dollars to incentivize green building. So why don’t more people take advantage of these green incentives? Well, information about these incentives is spread out over several websites, or not posted online at all. Also, many people don’t understand which incentives they are eligible for, so they simply don’t apply. And those who do attempt to apply learn that simultaneously applying for one — or multiple — incentives is quite difficult.

IncentiFind makes connecting to, and capturing, incentives easy through our 4-Step-Process:

Step 01 SEARCH: We identify incentives for your project using our comprehensive database (free service)
Step 02 VERIFY: We assist you in verifying your eligibility (for-fee service)
Step 03 APPLY: We assist you in applying for incentives using our application portal (included when you opt-in at Step 02 VERIFY)
Step 04 LOCATE: We locate and connect you to the right professionals for your project (included when you opt-in at Step 02 VERIFY)

IncentiFind effortlessly connects you with green incentives for your project. We currently serve building owners, real estate developers, property managers, homeowners, builders, designers, engineers, professional and technical service providers, and many others nationwide.

We are a comprehensive database of green incentives, and we are the first database + application portal of its kind.

I am a graduate of Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture. I began my career at Johnson Space Center and went on to live and work all over the world, in countries like the United States, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, and Mainland China. My project experience spans various markets and industries, such as: historic preservation, commercial, disaster recovery, aerospace, healthcare, research, judicial, military, pharmaceutical, and oil & gas. Regardless of location, or the industry I served, the common thread in my work was sustainable design.

 As I progressed through both my education, career, and travels, my passion for sustainability grew. When I returned to the USA in mid 2015, I desired to focus on my passion and launched IncentiFind to promote sustainable practices in our built environment. To practice sustainably, is to implement design, construction, and land development methods that are environmentally conscious. The goal is to meet today’s needs without depleting tomorrow’s resources. In other words, being a responsible steward for anything altered in the untouched environment.

With over a decade of experience in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, I understand client needs and project budgets. I also am empathetic to the feelings of frustration that can accompany including sustainable practices in a project. I want to help people understand that there is funding available for them, which can be found via our incentives database. I co-founded IncentiFind in order to quickly connect green projects to green incentives. Most importantly, I want people to realize that “going green” is within their reach.

I am a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio College of Architecture with a Master’s Degree in Architecture. I have been involved in architectural practice, higher education and advocacy work related to sustainability during my career, and I have a passion for communicating the need for sustainability.

My primary role is teaching at the University level where I have developed a variety of courses and coursework targeting the education of future architects, engineers, construction managers, environmental scientists and global citizens. I teach courses related to design, environmental systems, sustainable development, academic inquiry, critical thinking and scholarship. I also have eight years of project management and design experience in the architecture and engineering industries, helping clients and project team members reach their goals.

I have been an organizer for the U.S. Green Building Council in Texas for the past decade; I am currently serving on the State Board of Directors, and as Chair of the Advocacy Committee, which focuses on green building priorities at the national, state and local levels. Sustainability is the nexus between social, environmental, and economic prosperity and I believe that with proper directives — such as incentives and innovation — humanity is poised for a sustainable future. As we enter the sixth major wave of endogenous growth and economic expansion, sustainability and sustainable practices will propel the economies of the future toward shared prosperity. We are poised to take advantage of these opportunities, while living within our means and protecting our shared environment.

By capitalizing on our vast natural resources as well as the ingenuity of humanity, I want to help lead the world toward sustainability, through the 21st century and beyond.

I started my career before entering university; I did freelance web development, and helped start, setup and run an internet cafe when they were cool. I once attempted to launch my own social platform for college Greek life. I studied Computer Engineering at Texas A&M. I’ve consistently involved myself in as many opportunities as possible, with my own private consulting, internships, mentoring, hackathons, or just living by the learn-it-all mentality. In general, Lead Full-Stack Software Development has been my “go to” for technology saturation and skill sets. But over the past few years, I’ve focused on the bigger picture for business initiatives by presenting various IT solutions, which help drive innovation through implementation. My industry experience includes: eCommerce, entreprise financial technology, active-supply chain, non-profit, and aerospace. I seek to leverage technologies in the newest, most capable ways, whether it be in the cloud or on the ground. I do this through constant research and development with some prototyping. IT strategy and implementation, solutions architecture, lead development, volunteer computer science advising, and mentoring high schools students with Code.org — all are my passions. I strongly believe in continuous learning, in order to inspire others or be inspired by others.

 Sustainability needs awareness and my interest in the topic became stronger after my first home purchase, when I started using smart home devices to monitor my energy usage and better manage energy within my home. It’s amazing what this world is able to accomplish with IoT and the data it provides. As a software and technology enthusiast, I am always eager to apply what’s available technology-wise, to practical applications. I am bilingual in both technical and business communications. I have also been able to nurture and grow professional networks or relationships to ensure that what is desired is delivered through guided discovery and implementation.  Brainstorming, with innovation in mind, is an effort I make to help bring new goods to a changing tech world.

Presenting IncentiFind’s services and data — while defining who we are, what we can do, and how we can better serve people, profit, and planet— is something I’ve taken up as my personal goal as we build our platform and services. I look forward to when our partners and clients can all connect through a single experience, through the application or technological services, to better serve their needs.
