David Barnum

“I’ve been known to joke, ’Yeah, this is why I went to art school‘ when refining a business model, building digital products or analyzing data. In other words, I love tech, and I live to apply design thinking to solve business challenges.”

Wesley Holmes

“The clean energy transition is more of a cultural shift than it is a technical one. My purpose is helping people to understand clean energy technology and discover their own sense of purpose in contributing to positive change.“
